This museum is housed in a nice late 19th C traditional Turkish-architecture house in the lower part of Thessaloniki's atmospheric Upper Town.

Definitely nothing special, but full of tourist. Visit if you have a time (minimum one hour) but not part of ,,must see'' place in Solun. Entry is free, but you must use a bell on door to embassy.

Ataturk must mean something to you if this place is to be meaningful. It is quite sentimental. The documents give a nice overview of Ataturk’s life.

Ataturk was the founder of modern Turkey and a revered leader to all Turks. His birthplace, together with the consulate next door, was fortified like Fort Knox (Greece and Turkey do have a bit of history between them) and getting in was tricky - around...More
