Tekirdag Namık Kemal House Museum

Tekirdag Namık Kemal House Museum

Born in 1840 in Tekirdağ and forced to leave Tekirdağ after 6 years due to his grandfather’s transfer and reside in different provinces, the memories of the patriotic poet Nazım Hikmet meet with visitors at the Namık Kemal House.

Namik Kemal House is a 3-storey building built by Tekirdağ Namik Kemal Association in the style of 19th century Ottoman architecture. Founded in 1992 and opened exactly one year later, on his birthday, on December 21, 1993, the Namık Kemal House Museum is also a museum reflecting the recent history of Tekirdağ, where items belonging to Namık Kemal, articles and books he wrote, as well as ancient artifacts donated by the people of Tekirdağ are exhibited.

Namik Kemal House is not the house where Namik Kemal lived. His real house was destroyed by time. The Namik Kemal House Museum, on the other hand, was tried to be built in accordance with the original by looking at old photographs.
