Atatürk’s House Museum

The Atatürk’s House Museum which is located in Kayalıbağ quarter of Seyhan, Adana, is one of the best examples of traditional Adana houses built in 19th century. The two-storey building is made of brick and stone. It reflects the characteristics of Ottoman architecture. When Mustafa Kemal Atatürk came to Adana for the first time on 31 October 1918, the idea of national struggle was formed. When Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and his wife visited Adana on 15 March 1923 they stayed in this house which belonged to Suphi Pasha of Ramazanoğulları at the time. The building was restored by the “Atatürk Museum Construction and Conservation Society” and under the guidance of 6th Army Corps Commander Bedrettin Demirel and by the people’s help and donations and was organized as Atatürk Science and Culture Museum in August 1976 after having been expropriated. It was opened to public as Atatürk’s House Museum under the administration of Directorate of Museums on 19 May 1981, in the memory of the 100th Anniversary of Atatürk’s birthday. It was closed for restoration because of the damage caused by the earthquake on 27 June 1988 in Adana. It was opened to public after restoration on 15 March 2003, in the memory of the 80th Anniversary of Atatürk’s visit to Adana.

Atatürk’s visit to Adana is officially celebrated in this building every year on 15 March.
