As the title says, this place and what I learned from my visit made this the highlight for me. I had no idea Ataturk was born here and the premises also house the Turkish consulate. The displays were well put together and informative. Highly recommended.

This house is completely refurbished, with painted walls and new wooden floor. Nothing about the decor encourages you to envision the history of the house. The exhibition is solely about Ataturk (which can be understood) and the Turkish contribution to the Greek culture and Thessaloniki....More

As interesting as the history of Ataturk in Macedonia Greece is, don't expect the commentary to be in any other language but Turkish. It's a shame as he is a hero for many not just for the Turkish people.
