Trabzon Museum, Trabzon

The Trabzon Museum, also known as Kostaki Mansion, is a historic house museum with archeological and ethnographic exhibitions located in Trabzon, Turkey.HistoryThe mansion was built in the beginning of the 1900s as a private residence for Kostaki Teophylaktos, a notable banker of Greek origin. It is known that the architect was of Italian origin and many materials used in the building were brought from Italy. However, the name of the architect is unknown.As Teophylaktos went bankrupt in 1917, all his properties were confiscated, among them his mansion. The building was acquired by the Nemlioğlu family.During the timespan of Turkish War of Independence (1919–1923), the mansion was used as the headquarters for the military in the region. In 1924, it was prepared for the first visit of Mustafa Kemal, the founder of the Turkish Republic, to Trabzon. Between September 15–17, he and the First Lady Latife stayed in the mansion.In 1927, the building was nationalized by the Governor of Trabzon Ali Galip Bey, and served until 1931 as the Governor's House. Between 1931-1937, it was used as the inspector's office.The Kostaki Mansion was assigned in 1937 to the Ministry of National Education, and was used for fifty years long as a vocational high school for girls. Finally, in 1987, the building was handed over to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism to be transformed into a museum.

  • We did find the Museum by chance, while we sat in the Café opposite. The Museum has a very nostalgic, the premises tell a story supported by the design. Each room was for a particular activity use, unless a conference room, a dressing room, etc. Since we both are very historical, the visit really liked us.

  • "If you ask anybody, shows/describe" try to in the center of the city. Trabzon Museum. Built by a banker named beautiful Grand Kostaki is quite well preserved. Beautiful garden, this charming venue with glass decorations visit interesting, Trabzon City Center we think an important option in trips. The basement of the building also archaeological finds on display. The Museum card is valid. £ 5 entry ticket.
