About Kabatepe Museum
The Kabatepe Simulation Center or Kabatepe Museum in Gallipoli in Turkey is houses a collection of historic items relating to the Gallipoli Campaign of World War I.
The Gallipoli Campaign saw French and Commonwealth forces engage in a war with Turkey – then the Ottoman Empire – in order to remove the country from the First World War. One of the main reasons for this was that Turkey was an important route by which to supply Russia. It was also hoped that this would end the deadlock on the Western Front.
Whilst small, the Kabatepe Museum has an interesting collection ranging from uniforms and weaponry to letters and even bullet-pierced skulls.
The Helles Memorial commemorates Commonwealth and French casualties from the Gallipoli Campaign.
The Canakkale Martyrs Memorial commemorates the Turkish soldiers who died in the Gallipoli Campaign.
