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.

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.

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.
