  • TCG Hızırreis, on the deck of which the Turkish flag was hoisted in California in September 30th, 1983 after serving the USA Naval Forces for 30 years, was left out active service on February 9th, 2004 and it was turned into a museum ship by the Navy Command and the Metropolitan Municipality of Kocaeli and it was opened to public on October 29th, 2004. The submarine looks like a huge whale near the TCG Gayret Destroyer with its height of 87 meters and approximate weight of 2 thousand tons greets visitors with its “sinking buoy” and propellers along with the of TCG Gayret. The living quarters of these ships were preserved as original and they were decorated with sailor models in order to give and idea of the hard conditions of living the sea. The sound installation installed all around the vessel audibly informs visitors. The sound of torpedos being fired and original recorded voices from the vessel’s crews can be heard during the audible presentation and this makes visitors feel like they are sailors during a sea war.
