The museum opened by Alibey Kudar, a teacher born in the village of Takhtakushlar, introduces the cultural heritage of the boarding Turkmens from Central Asia to the present day to introduce Turkmen culture. These include the black house used by the Turkmens, the household utensils used in the early days, the Turkmen clothing, sacks, carpets and carpets. especially in one of the rooms inside the museum there is an art gallery where private works of art are on display.

One of the museum’s most notable exhibits is the world’s largest inflatable leather-backed sea turtle. He went astray on the shores of the South American coast and came to the shores of the Aegean Sea, and in 1997 he fell into a fishing net and died. The sea turtle, which weighs 360 kilograms and is 197 centimeters tall, is undergoing special treatment every year to prevent damage. Another 105-year-old sea turtle, which was wounded by the ship’s perch, is also on display next to that turtle.
