It may not be attractive for foreign tourists, but Zeki Muren has a very special space in the hearts of Turkish people. Museum shows how modest life he had lived, despite all that fame and money. It is only 5 liras, worth the shot.

Think Liberace, David Bowie, Boy George and Elton John, and you will get the idea. Zeki Muren was an outrageously flamboyant Turkish entertainer, with undoubted musical and artistic talents. His house has been opened as a museum and is well worth a visit.

This museum must be visited when you have time to spend in Bodrum. This is the house of Zeki Muren who was called Sun of Art by the public when he was alive.
