1920 Liberation Museum
The 1920 Liberation Museum was opened in 2013 by the Metropolitan Municipality of Kahramanmaraş and is situated inside the walls of the Maraş Fortress in the heart of the city.
'' Maras will not be a grave yard nor will it be a rose garden for the enemy. ''
The museum chronicles the history of heroic events of how one city saved itself from the occupying enemy, and in turn, the nation. The years of National Struggle began on February 22, 1919 in our city and continued until February 12, 1920. Twenty separate scenes are portrayed of the events that took place and the great heroism of the citizens of Maraş. This challenging period in the history of our city comes to life here in the Liberation Museum.
