  • Contemporary, well curated, cultural, historical, animated, simulated. Carpark, air condition, ... 7 tl for museum, 20 tl for simulation  more »
  • This was a really helpful start to a two day trip around the peninsula; just make sure you spend a minute orientating yourself and going round the exhibition in the right order. We didn't have time.....  more »
  • It could’ve been designed in a better way in order for the visitors easily visit each item presented
  • Ok so the Museum was well done. But the centrepiece of the place is a 1.5 hour cinematic explanation of the Gallipoli campaign - at least that’s what they promise. But instead of some factual information or historic accounts, what you get is a mix of dramatised nationalistic folklore and anecdotes about how the heroic Turks could think of no greater honour than to give their lives trying to repel the “bloodthirsty” (I wish I was joking but this is an actual quote) “colonialists”. There was zero historic context, zero mention of the pointlessness of the whole campaign with regards to the war outcome, zero reflection. With the current administration I should have known what to expect, I guess. You get propaganda, pure and simple for 90 minutes of your life, which you will never get back. Fun fact, the place used to be known as the Gallipoli Simulation Centre, and now it’s the Epic Promotion Centre. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
