This museum is housed in a nice late 19th C traditional Turkish-architecture house in the lower part of Thessaloniki's atmospheric Upper Town. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk's birthplace only contains a few personal belongings of his, but has many interesting pictures from his life and extensive descriptions...More

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.

The Ataturk Museum is located inside the perimeter of the Turkish Consulate, therefore razor-wire fences, iron gates and police checks can deter you from visiting. It would be a pity to give up, though, because this is by far one of the most interesting places...More

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

The guide informed that is not really the house of Attatourk and is outside of the city this is the oldTurkish consensus.

Nothing really nice. It is nice to go if you have nothing else to do. There are hundred museum like this around the world, so there is nothing really to loose.
