An exhibition of artefacts from the famous battle at Gallipoli is currently on display in Fethiye courtesy of the visiting Cannakale mobile museum.

The museum is definitely worth visiting and the visual impact of the pictures, retained artefacts and more are a powerful reminder of the savage war that took place between the allied forces and the then Ottomans in 1915.

The Gallipoli campaign gave an important boost to the career of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who later became the founder of Turkey.

The museum is located in the Fethiye Tourism and Hotel Colledge just up from MacDonald’s towards town. Free entrance.

Choose your times carefully though as there will be a long line of school kids visiting during the day as part of their curriculum studies.

The event is open until the 21st February.
