The three-story house of the Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz, who died in Istanbul in 1855, was transformed into a museum in 1955, according to a Turkish-Polish cultural agreement concerning the 100-year commemoration of the death of this important Polish poet. The Adam Mickiewicz Museum was opened to the public in!984. Divided into three halls, the museum is devoted to the life and works of this poet. The first hall displays an exhibition of the history and traditions of Poland, as well as Mickiewicz's literary works and personal belongings from Poland. The second hall is dedicated to Mickiewicz's efforts in the Polish national movement, and the third hall contains documents, photographs and engravings from the years he spent in the Ottoman Empire.
