I am not terribly into modern art but this Museum is still a must see. Most of the artists exhibited are Turkish and the exhibition space and contents are large. The exhibition is eclectic with paintings, photographs and installations together with sundry other "modern art"....More

While most of the visits include a trip down the Blue Mosque area, a visit to the Istanbul Modern Museum definitely worths your while. A collection of modern local art and a coffee shop that you can enjoy a Turkish coffee. Definitely a to-do!

If you want to see a more modern side to the Turkish art scene, the Modern is an excellent art museum that provides interpretative commentary in many languages with a headset. A bit eclectic and a welcome change from all the ancient attractions of Istanbul.

One of the best museums I've been to for a long time for it's unique collection of mainly contemporary art in a great space overlooking the Bosphorous. Delicious latte and lemon cheesecake in the cafe. A thoroughly wonderful afternoon. Near Karakoy renovated district with small...More

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,
