Denizli Pamukkale Ethnography Museum
Atatürk and Ethnographical Museum
The building has two floors on each of which there is a central landing with flanking rooms. The landing on the top floor extends the length of the building and opens onto a balcony. To the rear of the building is an extension which was a later addition.
The structural walls are of stone and the internal dividing walls are wooden screens. The doors to both the rear and front of the building are doubled. The windows are rectangular and shallowly arched. The windows that have bolted frames were made with double shutters opening outward. The building has a coarse-gabled roof with Marseille tiles.
The building is undecorated save for a molded covering
with a wiggle and groove design and wooden columns. Most
of the upper floor of the building is devoted to the exhibition
of ethnographic artifacts. The room in which Atatürk stayed
on his visit to Denizli, however, is preserved with his
baroque style desk, divan, brass bedstead and his wardrobe.
One room is kept as an example of how a typical Denizli
family would have lived 30 to 40 years ago. Beautiful examples
of necklaces, weapons, clothes, printed clothes and Turkish
works of art are exhibited on the upstairs landing.
