A must visit for those who are interested in the life story of modern Turkey's founder Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. The small museum gives you a pretty good insight into the stages of life and remarkable successes of the great Turkish leader.

Tiny but interesting museum, which gives overview of the life of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Devote 1 hour to visit it, it is for free. Especially when you are tired of heat outside, it is perfect place to combine cooling-down and learning a bit of history.
