The Bandirma Vapuru Muzesi is an open air museum including the Bandirma ship. The original changed many of its owners and landed in the hands of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. The current ship even though not the original, was built to replicate the original dimensions and in 2003 was opened to the Public.
The museum consists of 6 sections including a kitchen, a bedroom, the captain’s cabin and the main exhibition hall. The wax sculptures inside the ship truly take you back in time while the historic photos, facts and simply walking on the ship’s deck, completes the experience.
Other highlight includes:
- National Liberation Monument
- National Struggle Park
- Samsunlu martyrs plate

Bandirma Vapuru Muzesi Reviews & Ratings
Place where everything begun in 19.05.1919. "Must see" for those who wish to know about Turkey more. P.s.Entrance is not free, cost 2 Lira's but you do not get any token, they just give you normal metal 1 TL coins😆
It is very affordable and well organized museum. You can find historically important things about Turkish Republic establishment and Atatürk. I highly recommend this museum for whoever visiting Samsun. It is only 2 Turkish Liras for adults.
I think İts very important place
An exact replica of the Bandırma Ferry which is turned into a museum, the ferry in which Mustafa Kemal sailed to Samsun to start the Independence War. Beautifully done, worth a visit.
Ataturk Ship Bandirma converted to museum. And open for tourists to visit. Must visit place during visit to samsun a city of Turkey.
