Zübeyde Hanım Education and Museum Ship is open to visitors as a museum on a ship on the sea in Konak, Izmir. The ship once carried passengers on both sides of the Bosphorus like the ships of today, and one day it completed its mission.
Built in 1987, the ship was named after Atatürk’s mother. Since Mrs. Zübeyde’s grave is also in Karşıyaka, the ship was taken to İzmir to be evaluated instead of being scrapped.
Zübeyde Hanım Ship Museum also serves as a training ship for those who want to pursue a maritime profession. They can reinforce their education by touching various maritime materials such as compasses and rudders. Among the materials that will be of interest to those who are more interested in the maritime profession, yoma scissors, circulating reel, health materials used by doctors and health officers until the 1900s, calorimeter device are among the examples we can give to what you will see.
The exhibition includes the lens system used in the first lighthouses in history, types of knots for sailors, compasses, pressure gauges, flare guns and flares.
One of the rooms in the museum is used as a dining room and an exhibition hall. Oversized photographs of Zübeyde Hanım, Atatürk’s mother, are on display.
