This museum opened on July 18, 1930 in the Namazgah area of Ankara on a hill with a Muslim graveyard. The courtyard here closed in November 1938 when it served as a temporary burial place for Ataturk and when his body was removed to Anitkabir it reopened, although the tomb has been preserved here as to respect the memory of Ataturk as he laid here for 15 years.
