Hüseyin Rahmi Gurpinar House Museum

Hüseyin Rahmi Gürpınar is one of the most valuable names that our literary history has raised in the recent period. The house of the author, who lived in the first half of the last century and produced many works, was converted into a museum years later. The author writes most of his works in this house. He continued to live here between 1912 and 1944. The location and atmosphere of the house provides extremely favorable conditions for the museum. For this reason, the Ministry of Culture, which welcomes the idea of ​​turning the house into a museum, succeeds in putting this idea into practice in a short time. This special and fascinating place, which not only literature lovers but also almost everyone who comes to Heybeliada wants to visit, takes you into the world of a great writer.

Visitors to Hüseyin Rahmi Gürpınar's museum house also encounter much more interesting aspects of him. One of these surprises is the handicrafts made by the author himself. On the other hand, many personal belongings, study rooms and books are offered to the visitors. The fact that the building hosting the museum is a 150-year-old wooden building is another factor in attracting the museum's attention. Although it has a nice view due to its privileged location, the fact that the museum is on the hill is sometimes considered as a disadvantage. Hüseyin Rahmi Gürpınar Museum House is open to visitors six days a week. You can visit this place between 10:00 and 16:00 every day except Monday. Visiting the museum is completely free.

The original house of Hüseyin Rahmi Gürpınar, one of the most brilliant writers of the Republican era, is closed to visitors for a period of repair. Under normal circumstances, the property rights of the museum belong to the Istanbul Special Provincial Administration; however, with the closure of this formation, the museum is transferred to the Istanbul Municipality. The Metropolitan Municipality has owned the property rights of the museum since 2013. Museum inventory delivery takes place in 2017.
