Uzunköprü - Museums and cultural institutions
UZUNKÖPRÜ CITY MUSEUM
The Uzunköprü City Museum is located in the city center. The building where the museum is
located was built as a private mansion in the early 1900's. In 1939, when the tobacco
production and trade in the region became important, it was used as the Tekel (Reji Building)
building. On 16 December 2013, the building was restored and opened as a museum.
The museum building, which is a historical monument in itself, has been restored while
preserving its historical features and has been turned into a center that displays historical
artifacts in the region. The historical artifacts are separated according to their features in each
room of the museum, which has two floors and six rooms.
Historical artifacts belonging to Uzunköprü and its villages are displayed on the first floor.
These ethnographic works, old photographs and written documents were donated by the
public. On the upper floor, there are scenes in which the traditions and customs of the people
of the region are symbolized by mannequins. Living Room, Bridal Room, Coffee Corner,
traditional professions are some of displayed areas.
