A single-span stone bridge of unique beauty and arch structure was built upon the order of Suleiman the Magnificent from 1557 to 1566 by the architect Mimar Hajruddin under the design made by Kodzo Mimar Sinan.

The Museum creates an image of life on the bridge and around it through all of its aspects ranging from cultural/historical, architectural, economic, military to everyday life. The specifics of the old city center development and intertwining of the bridge and the city are pronounced.

The archeological excavations (2001-2003) were conducted at the time of the Old Bridge reconstruction.

The view of the Old Town and beyond is beautiful from the top of the tower. In 2005, UNESCO inscribed the Old Town and the Bridge on the World Heritage List.
