Overview

Sait Faik Abasiyanik, the great writer who dedicated himself to Darüşşafaka's mission and bequeathed his assets and copyrights to his books to the Society, is a pioneer in modern Turkish story-writing. Sait Faik Abasiyanik's museum house in Burgaz Island (Burgazada) where he lived and wrote many of his stories, was renewed and reopened for its visitors by Darüşşafaka Society. Sait Faik Abasiyanik Museum, exhibiting Sait Faik's belongings, manuscripts, letters, photographs, and many other objects and documents which carry the traces of his memories, was opened to the public for the first time on August 22, 1959. The museum is maintained by Darüşşafaka Society since 1964, and is one of the most visited museum houses of Turkey since the day it was opened. After the completion of restoration and conservation works which had been carried out since 2010 by Darüşşafaka, the museum was reopened to its visitors on May 11, 2013 with its brand new look, restored and renewed with a contemporary museology approach. The museum, which takes Sait Faik's readers to a fascinating journey to his literary and spiritual world, is open to the public free of charge upon the writer's bequest. We invite Sait Faik lovers and everyone who would like to discover his world, to Sait Faik Abasiyanik Museum.

A very well presented museum, free to the public. Only drawback is the lack of English descriptions (only the brochure has English). Even if you don't read Turkish or know of the author, well worth the 5 minute walk from the ferry station.
