After Atatürk's death the house was handed over to the managemant of Çelik Palas, the biggest hotel in Bursa which was next to the house. But in 1965, it was bought by the Ministry of National Education. In 1973 it was opened as Atatürk's house. In the ground floor there are photos of Atatürk. Atatürk's office as well as the bedroom and the bathroom are in the upper floor. The uppermost floor is a guesthouse.

This has been one of the most interesting visits in a museum. The guide was the main reason for this. He greeted and treated us as kindly as we can hardly describe, and brought Atatürk back to life. Thank you so much for this!
