The 'Little Prince Book Museum' consisting of 2000 different editions of Antoine de Saint-Exupery's 'Little Prince' in 400 different languages, is opened in Eskişehir.
Philosophy teacher Ali Lidar who admired the novel written in 1943 by the French writer and pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupery, compiled many various editions together and turned the lodging building belonging to the school into a museum.
In the museum beside the Little Prince in Braille alphabet, there is also the smallest Little Prince book in the world, books in Old Turkic, Aztec, Mayan, and Bambara (the language used by a local tribe in Mali) languages.
