At Heykel, in the city center right behind the statue, this is a showcase for local history and handicrafts. Among the exhibits are impressive recreations of sections in a traditional bazaar, such as those for silk weavers and knife makers, artifacts relating to the history of Bursa and its first five sultans, and to Atatürk during the independence war. Clothing, household items, and dioramas of life at home, school, and in the hamam are also on show. The exhibits
are in Turkish, so get one of the English-language headsets at the entrance, though the audio does not provide full narration.
