Great museum. Small enough see everything in a few hours but big enough that you'll have a good time and get your money's worth. The audio guide is good to have if you're interested in hearing directly from the artists.

Contemporary museum sitting in the middle of old part of Istanbul. Good collections and impressing. After wondering around the contemporary museums in other cities in Europe, Istanbul doesn't disappoint me. Go wondering around the neighborhood too.

There are 4 floors of exhibits. But I could only appreciate the photographic exhibition of Yildiz Moran and the sculptures by Anthony Cragg. Didn't understand the rest At TL50, I don't think it's worth the price.

An expensive museum (around 6€) with very few things interesting/creative things. Hopefully they bring new and more interesting things in the future.

Nice modern museum in Beyoglu. Apart from the Anthony Cragg temporary exhibition that comprises several masterpieces, I would like to underline the Burhan Doğançay artworks along with the really interesting photography exhibition about Yildiz Moran. The only thing I dislike is that tourists pay more...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening

The museum is closed at the moment for about a year or more due to new building construction. They moved it to a smaller building in Beyoglu area, check their web site for new address.
