Atatürk's House Museum is a national museum in Antalya, dedicated to the visits of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk to Antalya. During Atatürk’s era, Antalya was a small town yet Atatürk described Antalya as one of the most beautiful places in the world.
The museum is located in a two-storey Ottoman house, which was restored back to it’s original features and character. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk stayed at the house during his official visits to Antalya in 1930 and 1935 which belonged to the governorship of the province. In 1984, the building was handed over to the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism to be transformed into a museum. With the financial support of a local electricity distribution company, the house was rebuilt on the same location. In 1986, the museum opened to the public.
At the first floor, newspapers, photos and documents relating to Atatürk's visits to Antalya between March 6–10, 1930 and February 18–19, 1935 are on display. At the second floor, there are two working rooms and a bedroom. At another section on that floor, a collection of banknotes, coins, commemorative coins and postage stamps issued since the proclamation of the Republic is on the show.
The most important part of the museum is the room with personal belongings of Atatürk, which were brought from Anıtkabir mausoleum in Ankara
