Yilmaz Buyukersen Balmumu Heykeller Muzesi
A Delightful Wax MuseumThe mayor of Eskisehir, Yilmaz Buyukersen, created the wax museum and made the figures. We walked through Turkish history from the Ottoman Empire to Ataturk to the modern day leaders. The museum displays nearly every influential member of Turkish society including journalists, writers, comedians, actors and musicians. Photos are allowed except for the world leaders section where Queen Elizabeth, Putin and Obama rub elbows. The man in the photo is Nasreddin Hoca, a Sufi satirical figure similar to Aesop.
