The focus of the Baksı Museum is human and its values
Founder of Baksı Museum Dr. Hüsamettin KOÇAN explained the importance of the bus, which is a gift to the museum, for Bayburt and the surrounding provinces:
“Baksı Culture and Arts Foundation started its museum studies in Bayraktar Village, formerly known as Baksı, 45 km away from Bayburt, the smallest city of Anatolia. It is no coincidence that the Baksı Museum, which opened its doors in 2010, was founded in that region. It is aimed to find solutions to the problems of cultural alienation of the region, the ruptures and chaos caused by social erosion due to intense immigration. Baksı Museum's focus is every zamthe moment became man and his values. The Baksı Museum, which causes the question of the energy that the assembly institutions established in different regions with different models or repeated in the centers will add to the relationship between art and people, was established in Bayburt's Bayraktar Village to reach people on a hill. However, communication cannot take place only by intention, but also means of communication are needed. A special facility provided by BMC for the Baksı Museum to reach the surrounding mountains and cities brought the museum closer to each other by winding roads leading to the mountains. This great opportunity served a great social purpose by opening the main roads that seem obstructed for Baksı to reach people. This value given to the Baksı Museum by BMC will have very important consequences for future generations. On behalf of our museum and the people of the region, I thank BMC.

We are delighted to support a project like the Baksı Museum, founded under the leadership of volunteers who love their homeland and people, and whose sole purpose is to benefit the society. We wish the bus delivered to Baksı Museum to be beneficial for our people in Bayburt and the surrounding areas. "
