Representative scientists in the delegation have the effort and desire to prove that the inscriptions belong to them. Russian working day and night North Europe Aside from the desire to own the inscriptions, many Western scientists have thought of every nation, but never even thought of the Turks. Because they have a prejudiced attitude towards Turks. When Danish scientist Thomsen accidentally deciphers the word ‘Turk’ in the Göktürk Inscriptions, it turns out that these inscriptions belong to Turks. The Western world lives in silence for a long time. Hani They say that the Turks made history but did not have time to write it. Our ancestors made a contribution to world history and even showed that they had a developed literary language with Göktürk inscriptions and their own alphabet, thus they declared that they also contributed to the world cultural civilization. We learned that these inscriptions recorded Turkish history until fifteen centuries ago, and that they also recorded the history of our ancestors. Request Middle Asia from the steppes to Europe, Anatolia and Africaextending to; In the words of the late Demirel, ‘from the Adriatic’ the Great Wall of ChinaIn our museum complex, ink from four different museums, which are handled in a contemporary design with the adventure of the Turks and the historical, cultural and architectural details of our nation spanning continents, history makes its ‘official gateway’.

Because museums are sources of memory where humanity discovers and develops their identities and beautifies their souls and spiritual selves with a sense of belonging to a society. Museums are very important learning centers and regular or irregular educational resources for people of all ages, places that increase the quality of life. Observing these four museums; Our students at primary, secondary and high school levels will observe what is taught in their books and lessons as if they are alive, compare historical periods and visualize a monolithic history in their minds. Considering the fact that visual learning prevents forgetting, the information learned at school will be reinforced in the museum in a practical way. I believe that Edirne museums, which contain opportunities as an educational environment, will be a tool of educational cooperation, especially for our teachers at every school level. Museums; It should be used effectively as a practice school for the education of culture, art, history, science and other fields.
