I visited a couple of Ataturk musea before (in Izmir and Antalya to be exact) and find it interesting to learn more about this great historic leader...and it's also interesting to see an authentic middle class house from a century ago from the inside)... however this place is closed for renovations at the moment, a sign at the front gate claims it will reopen at the end of next month

Nice looking house, even better inside. Open 8.30 am - 19.00 pm. FREE TO VISIT. You have to put your bags in a locker at the entrance, which is free. Lots of steps to get inside, & 2 floors to visit, so not suitable for disabled people, or pushchairs. Toilets inside.
Ground floor, find the history of Ataturk himself & his rise to power. Next floor living quarters with furniture & traditional clothing, well looked after, explanations in English, friendly staff but don't speak much English.

We found the House of Ataturk by accident on our map of Alanya. Our tour reps didn't mention it and it took us a while to find it as it's slightly out of the centre. It doesn't look as though many people visit it, the one member of staff appeared surprised to see us and had to go and turn on all the lights so that we could have a look round!
Entrance is free and it's worth a visit if you're interested in Ataturk and have a little time to fill. I should point out though that most of the information in the house is in Turkish so it was difficult to know what most of the exhibits were. Also Ataturk didn't actually live here, he just rested there for a while. Still, it has some interesting pieces of furniture, telegrams sent by Ataturk, some of his clothing etc. Worth a visit if you're in the area but I wouldn't take time out to specifically visit it.

A nice mansion in a bit off center location. Not too crowded and probably not very well advertised either. Next door to our hotel, so dropped in due to it's vicinity. Took about 10 mins to see the rather interesting rooms. Free entrance made it worthwhile to visit. Would not cover great distances to visit.

A couple of things amazed me when I visited the Ataturk House:

1 - Admission was free (unusual in Turkey these days)
2 - I had thought that Ataturk had spent only one night in Alanya back in February 1935, but it turned out that he didn't even stay for that long, arriving in the port at 7.00 am and departing again at 10.30 am. However, Alanya schools still get a day off on 18th February each year to commemorate the auspicious occasion.

The house is interesting to visit, with all displays labelled in English and Turkish. Some of the information is in the form of several pages, not just a quick label, so a lot can be learnt about the Alanya of almost 100 years ago. It's on 2 floors with the rooms mainly set out as rooms would have been then, including some life-like models, and then on the lower of the 2 floors there are a couple of rooms which are more like a museum with exhibits behind glass, mainly Ataturk's personal effects and copies of telegrams relating to the visit in 1935.

I probably wouldn't travel a long way to visit, but if you're in the centre of Alanya it's well worth popping in to see it.

House of Ataturk is nearby citycenter og Alanya. Not easy to find, there´s only a small sign on the gate to the house showing this was Ataturks residence when he visited Alanya.

Ataturk stayed only one day in Alanya and the family who owned the property donated it to be used as a museum. The house is in excellent condition and the displays not only gives information about the life of Ataturk but also gives you insight into the history and people of Alanya. The entrance is free as you do not pay to visit an Ataturk museum in Turkey. We stayed on Cleopatra beach and could easily walk to the museum. Any hotel should be able to give you directions. If you need a break from the beach this is worth a visit.

Being an Attaturk museum this is free to enter. It is a house which Attaturk only stayed in for a few hours but it has been turned into a small social history museum. There is plenty of information written in English to make this a very interesting little museum. It gives you a good understanding of how the middle classes lived a few generations ago. Also downstairs is a lot of information about the life and works of Attaturk himself. Even if you read everything inside it is still a short visit but definitely well worth it.

This is the hotel which Atatürk lived in when he was in Alanya. They have displayed in each room how they lived in Turkey in Atatürk's period of life. It was free of charge to go inside. If you are interested in Turkeys history, especially Alanyas history and important facts about Atatürk, is this museum something for you!

From the House Museum you've can enjoy the fantastic view of the snow-capped Beydaglari Mountains (this year we've had a lot of snow - the most in over 30 years). The mansion is dedicated to Ataturk and has served as a museum since 1986, On the ground floor there is an exhibition which record Ataturk's visit to Antalya, a dining hall and a bureau. There is also an audio-visual presentation of documentaries regarding Ataturk and Antalya.
