(3.7/5 based on 75 reviews on the web)
The Trabzon Museum, aka 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.

  • In the heart of the city, muzekart is a great home that is valid. In a night of Atatürk's konakladigi archaeological works are exhibited impressive mansions. An old bankerkin House. Coverings, furniture, architecture is great. If you ever find your way must be freed

  • In the Museum there's a section consisting of pictures, but who's who. Museum content can be improved. Just to see the building go.

  • Frankly, from our former President at the Museum a few personal effects of Mr. Cevdet Sunay and will Hermes statue never seen anything much except in my mind. Trabzon is rooted in history, such as the one of the city's Museum expects more and important parts.

  • Trabzonun dar sokaklarında, etrafındaki kafelerin de etkisiyle içine kapanık masum bir duruşu olan güzel müze.
  • A great historical place...
  • This is a great little museum and worth the time.
  • Trabzondaki, like almost all historic buildings in the ruma. It's a beautiful building, the Museum is a proud on behalf of real use as a cultural event. The problem is that I don't have any interaction at the level of curatorial 1940:, no theme. Safeties are sleeping sitting around bored out of my mind. The historic building on Pierce they put cameras in every room. What is not clear is why.
