Historically Signifcant Location

It is free to enter this house established as a museum. Upstairs living room plays a documentary film with English subtitles explaining Dr. Fazil Kucuk's life fused with Turkish Cyprus history. I learned an abundance of interesting information, therefore found my visit worthwhile.

Interesting museum

Although I'd read about the history between Greek and Turkish Cypriots, I'd never heard much about Dr Kucuk's work outside politics - for that alone this museum is worth going to when in Nicosia.

Okay. Greek Cypriots should avoid
Dec 2017 • Solo
The museum is the former home and office of Dr Fazil Kucuk's former, the first vice president of Cyprus. Set over 2 floors, this museum is dedicated to the live and work of Fazil Kucuk including is medical work and career in politics. There isn't actually much information, being mostly themed exhibits of items belong to Kucuk.

There really isn't very much for the generalist and there's enough propaganda to sicken the average Greek Cypriot.

However the museum is free. The exhibits are good, but there's just not enough information.

Worth a quick look

This is a free museum which was the house and clinic of Dr Fazil Kucuk, who I believe became the first Vice President of the Republic of Cyprus. There are exhibits on two floors, plenty to look at and read. Worth a quick look if you're in the area.

If you have an hour to spare call in to the museum and it is free. It was worth seeing and the staff were very helpful.

Worth visiting
Sep 2016 • Family
We got there about 12.45 and as it closed at 1 we felt we may have to come back. There is no charge to view the house and it is over 2 floors. The upstairs is the living accommodation and the rooms downstairs is where he practise medicine. If you are in Nicosia call in. The staff will help if you have any questions.

Free! Worthy of a visit.

The museum is very near to the Samanbahce Quater, the British Colonial Law Courts and the Venetian Coloumn.
Dr Fazil Kucuk Museum was the leader of the Turkish Cypriots during their struggle for independence. He was born in Nicosia in 1906 and died on the 15th of January 1984. The house where he used to live, has been transformed into the first private museum in North Cyprus. The two storey building, built in the 1920's from cut stone, was both Dr Kucuk's home but also his clinic. The museum exhibits both photos of Dr Kucuk as well as his belongings.
***on arrival, we found the door closed, but were allowed in after a heavy knock. Only the downstairs was avaiable to view, a couple of rooms as well as clothing on mannequins in glass cabinets. There was an interesting old map in a frame! Worthy of a visit if in the area!
