Sivas Things to Do: 32 reviews and 60 photos
To fully appreciate Sivas' role in the lead up to the founding of the modern Turkish republic, you should visit the museum that used to be the school building where Ataturk presided over the Sivas Congress, which together with the Erzurum Congress, heralded the Turkish War of Independence (against Allies who occupied Turkey following the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire after WWI).
The museum contains several interesting pieces, including the hall where the Congress itself was held, preserved as it was when the Sivas Congress convened. Ataturk's bedroom and several of his manuscripts are displayed, as well other historical and ethnographical collection, such as fine kilims and carpets.
The museum is open Tue-Sun, 8:30 AM-Noon and 1:30-5:30 PM. Entrance fee is YTL 2.
