This museum, known as the Nasreddin Hodja Archeology and Ethnography Museum, is located in Konya. The museum, whose old name is Rüştü Bey Mansion, was built by Rüştü Bey, one of the wealthy people of Akşehir. Rüştü Bey, who built the mansion, was the founder of Akşehir. There are two structures known for itself in the district. One of them is the Rüştü Bey Inn built in 1904 and the other is the Rüştü Bey Mansion, which was started to be built at the beginning of the First World War. After Rüştü Bey demolished the house belonging to his father Mustafa Ağa on the same parcel, the construction of the mansion was started by Armenian masters and completed by Turkish masters. In one part of the building, which was planned as a two-storey twin house with wooden carriers, adobe and stone materials on the basement and ground floor, Rüştü Bey's sons lived in one part and himself in the other part. A mixed cultural texture is seen in Akşehir, where different ethnic groups have lived together throughout history. For this reason, different elements from traditional Turkish houses are frequently encountered in the architectural texture of the city. The traces of this mixed culture are clearly seen in the Rüştü Bey Mansion.
Rüştü Bey Mansion, which was registered by the decision of the Supreme Council of the Ministry of Culture dated 15.11.1985 and numbered 1569, was expropriated by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in 1989 and its repair started in 1992. Rüştü Bey Mansion, which was later organized as "Nasreddin Hoca Archeology and Ethnography Museum", has preserved its originality until today. The mansion, which was built in the twin house plan type, was built on two floors on the basement and ground floor. There are a total of six rooms on the ground floor and the Ethnographic and Archaeological Artifact Warehouse is located on this floor along with the administrative units. The second floor is the section where archaeological artifacts are exhibited. There are six rooms in each part of the building, three each. In the rooms divided into chronological periods, the works are exhibited. The third floor is the section where ethnographic works are exhibited. On one side, there are rooms where Nasreddin Hodja's joke and row wounds are revived and the bridal room of Akşehir are exhibited. On the other side, ethnographic works are exhibited. In the middle hall, the 13th century woodwork, the gate of the Seyyid Mahmud Hayrânî Tomb and the chest belonging to the Sheikh Eyüb Tomb are exhibited.
