  • On October 18, 2019, 3 full 1 student fees were charged by the attendant regarding our visit, but no receipts or tickets were given. I demand a follow-up.

  • This is a private museum dedicated to the writer. The furniture inside belonged to Kemal, who lived in Bakirköy. I like it very much when someone has a passion and makes it accessible to the public. Nevertheless, not much information is provided in English and it is small.

  • The author and the negative novels of the character of Bandekar Murtaza... It is a house in the jihad where the son of Kemal was presented and the goods were exhibited, but it is not a place where Kemal is illegal.
