The building, which was used as one of rhe headquarters ın the Turkish War of Independence, was built in 1904-1905 as a municipality building. On November 18, 1921, it was assigned to the Western Front Command as headquarters building. The building, where the preparations and plans as well as the decision of the Great Offensive were made, was renovated and arranged in 1964 to be converted into a museum, and opened to visitors on July 5,1966 under the name of "Atatürk and Etnography Museum" in memory of days of hope and struggle. After the renovation and reorganization in 1981, the name of this museum has become "Western Front Headquarters Museum".

The Lower floor or the building is used as the administrative section, whereas the anteroom and surrounding 8 rooms on the upper floor house the exhibition. Atatürk's office where the decision of the Great Offensive was made, as well as the offices of İsmet Pasha, the Commander of the Western Front, and Asım Gündüz, chief of staff of the headquarters are here. In the museum, Atatürk's personal belongings, which he used after being President and presented to him, as well as documents and photographs of the years of the war of independence, are exhibited.
