Th thessaloniki kemal ataturk houseMustafa Kemal Ataturk was born in this house in Apostolou Pavlou St in 1881. In 1935 the Thessaloniki city council decided to give the building to the Turkish State which afterwards converted it into a museum dedicated to the life and achievements of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk was the founder and leader of the modern secular Turkish State. He is considered one of the most important and historic personalities of Turkey. The house was built in 1870. It has three floors and a courtyard. After extended repairs and restoration efforts in 1981 it is now housing the Kemal Ataturk museum, while it was repainted to its original colours. In 2013 the museum reopened to the public after an additional restoration plan that lasted 3 years.

A historic destination within the Turkish Consulate

Th thessaloniki kemal ataturk houseMost of the furnitures and personal objects placed inside the house are authentic while the missing items were replaced with other from Kemal’s mausoleum and Top Kapi in Instanbul. Several photographs decorate the interior walls depicting Kemal Ataturk in various important periods of his life.

The sight is one of the favorite destinations for the majority of the Turkish visitors in Thessaloniki. More than 120.000 people visited the Kemal Ataturk museum in 2014. Since the house is located in the same property with the Turkish Consulate in Thessaloniki you might have to ask for a permission in order to enter the building.
