Great exhibitions and even the restaurant is a work of art with a cafe right on the water. A nice compliment to all of the historic monuments.

The new location of the museum is in the historical neighborhood, Pera. The neighborhood hosted many artist studios duch as Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu. The new building is smaller then the original location, so it does limit a bit the possibility to expose the works in...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.
