Abstract: In this study, the aim was to reveal individuals’ interest and awareness regarding historical artifacts located in the Erzurum province. The research was conducted using a descriptive survey model in line with a qualitative approach. The participant group of the study consists of 90 individuals selected through convenience sampling method from the central districts of Erzurum between the years 2018 and 2019. In this research, the interview method has been adopted, and data were collected using a semi-structured interview form. The data obtained from the study were analysed using content analysis method. Based on the findings of the study, it has been determined that most of the participants perceive historical artifacts as works of art and remnants, and they are more familiar with historical artifacts in their immediate surroundings. Furthermore, it has been observed that physically visiting historical artifacts increases interest in them, and when participants explore historical artifacts, they tend to engage in historical analysis thinking. It has been determined that historical artifacts should be significant for society, and individuals mostly acquire information about historical artifacts from written sources and visits. It has been concluded that participants have an interest in historical artifacts located in Erzurum, but their levels of awareness are low. In addition, it seems that individuals do not notice historical artifacts in their immediate surroundings both in their educational and daily lives.
