The museum is quite big and require half day if you wish to know deep about the legacy of Turkey's immortal Atartuk. The design and arrangement of the exhibition inside the museum was great. I would pay my respect to the soldiers marching outside the museum during the sunny day. You just need to be more careful when walking /... More

Worthwhile visit to understand the history of modern Turkey. Museum layout has simple, straightforward flow and easy to read displays. Ataturk's mausoleum is serene and spacious.

Charles and I ventured on our own to the Ataturk Museum, run by the government and free to the public. This was not an actual residence of the Father of Modern Turkey, but the home where he stayed when he was in Istanbul. Several rooms were devoted to photos and news clips of Ataturk. The other rooms contained the original... More

Since I'm an expat living in Istanbul, I'm always on the lookout for hidden attractions off the beaten path. This small museum is well worth a visit if you've already ticked the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace etc. off your list. Entrance is free (opening hours every day 9 am - 4 pm, except Mondays). Don't get put off by the... More

Having read earlier reviews on Trip Advisor I was unsure if I would find this fabulous little museum open. I can confirm that the museum has reopened after a major renovation. It is free to enter and is a wonderful experience. You will need to wear plastic ‘shoes’ over your day shoes before you are allowed to enter the museum.... More

Thank you to Ibrahim for letting us know it is closed for rennovation. There is no sign saying when it will re-open. Just another heads up, in all the web photos it is a distinctive pink colour. I wandered for ages looking for it. It has been repainted yellow with white trim. It is just past the Rumeli exit of... More

I travelled there today 17-07-15, unfortunately it's closed for 4 months currently being refurbished. To save yourself a wasted trip give them a call before hand, in around 4 months time.

You need to go here! Because Ataturk is the most well known historical figure in the country as the founder of Turkey after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. Pick up some literature to read about the history before you go. But you will not learn about it in this tiny little museum unless you learn to speak the language... More

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
