Istanbul Ataturk Museum

Ataturk’s former residence in Sisli now serves as the Ataturk Museum and displays his personal effects.

Open to the public since 1942, this house was the residence of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk in 1919 just before he departed for Anatolia to organize the struggle for National Liberation against the Allied Occupation following World War I.

Restored in 1991 by the Municipality of Istanbul, the museum contains Atatürk’s personal belongings, military uniforms and decorations, manuscripts, photographs and portraits done by the some of the leading painters of the period.
