The Ahmet Piriştina City Archive Museum consists mainly of two main parts. These can be listed as Archives Department and Museum Department. The Ahmet Piriştina City Archive Museum is located in Çankaya district of Konak district of Izmir. As its name suggests, many documents, written, audio and visual materials about the recent history of Izmir are exhibited in the city archive. This can also be considered as a kind of document repository. Many people or institutions have great efforts in the archive. Many students, researchers, writers, journalists, academics or artists benefit from the Ahmet Piriştina City Archive Museum. Everything is sorted according to their subjects in the archive building. This place also stands out as a center that has rapidly adapted to new technologies. On certain days of the week, visual presentations and multi-color events and informative presentations are carried out. Izmir is home to many civilizations in its history. Thousands of documents reflecting this cultural heritage are archived here. Certain parts of the archive are not naturally suitable for visiting. These private documents are carefully protected and cannot be accessed except with special permissions. The site of the Ahmet Piriştina City Archive Museum, which is seen as the black box of the city in a way, is also an old fire station. This adds a different dimension to the aesthetics of the place. The fire station is known to have been built in 1932. The Archive hall has 24 computerized work desks, which are available to all. These are integrated into the database. It is easy to access any document archived here. There is also a separate section where the officials continue to prepare various projects.

    Türkiye’de bir ilk olan ve açıldığı günden itibaren büyük ilgi gören kurum, aynı zamanda da İzmir Büyükşehir Belediyesi’ne ait bir arşiv görevi görmektedir. Bina bir anlamda, hem resmi bir kurum hem de kamusal hizmet veren dışa dönük bir kentsel kültür unsuru olarak varlık göstermektedir.
