Atatürk Museum

The Atatürk Museum is the birthplace of the founder of modern Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk — "Father of the Turks", who was born here in 1881. It is a three-storey house with a courtyard, complete with original furniture. Any missing items were replaced with items from Kemal's mausoleum and from Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. Naturally, the museum is very popular with visitors from Turkey. A replica of the house has been constructed in Ankara.
