|Location||Heybeliada, Adalar, Istanbul, Turkey|
Hüseyin Rahmi Gürpınar (1864-1944) was a famous writer specialized in daily life of İstanbul, mostly in a humorous way. During the 1912-1944 period, he lived on Heybeliada. His house is situated on top of a hill overlooking the Marmara Sea. After his death, the house was handed over to various museum authorities with the intention of establishing a historic house museum. For over half a century, it was neglected. Finally, the building was converted into a museum by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism with the support of Adalar Municipality. It was opened to visits in 2000.
