Historical places, especially museums, are of great importance in terms of introducing our cultural heritage from generation to generation and transferring our past to memories with visuals and various themes. The Malazgirt Museum, located in the town of Malazgirt, where the Manzikert Victory, one of the greatest victories in Turkish-Islamic history with its religious, national, political, and military consequences, was won, tells the history of the district itself in its source.
In the museum, which was opened in 2021 as a unit affiliated with the Muş Museum, the Battle of Malazgirt 1071 is portrayed with the war miniature of the Seljuk Army and the Byzantine Empire.
In the museum, in addition to the visuals about the sultans of the Ottoman Empire and war heroes, cultural assets representing different regions of Türkiye and works such as the Taksim Tramway, which exhibits the historical texture of the Ottoman Period, are exhibited.
In the Turkish Republic Period and War Heroes section, there are photographs of the Bandırma Ferry, the Statue of Commander-in-Chief Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and the female heroes of the Republican Period. In this section, where a tank is also exhibited, there are photographs of the night of the July 15 coup attempt and our martyrs.
Expressing the Turkish-Islamic history from the 1071 Malazgirt Victory to the present day with visuals and various themes, the Malazgirt Museum aims to reinforce the historical and cultural awareness of the visitors by giving place to the local tools and equipment, handicrafts, and various materials that reflect the cultural texture of the people of the region in their daily life.
