A museum that has little to offer. Just some effects that have not impressed me. It is just a painted dome with light being shed on the surface accompanied by exaggerated sound effects. Not worth visiting when there is such an abundance of other magnificent...More

It's not a big deal but if you're close to this Area than it's worth it to see the Panorama 1453 at 15 TL.

A very well organized, managed, historical background of conquer. Multi language audio guide headsets are available. There are pictures, letters, objects, a very stunning screenplay grasping you in the time of 1453 siege, you will remember war screams for a while... Must really see.

It is not mentioned as top tourist destination but it really is extraordinary. It illustrates the conquer (fateh)of Istanbul. And the gift shop is surprisingly cheap with great souvenirs. A must go to anyone interested in the history of Istanbul.

Incredible place that everyone who come to Istanbul must see. The show their is soo fantastic, the music and sound effects are amazing, for a while you will think you are at the middle of a battle.

For an entrance fee of 15tl this is well worth the visit. There is an audio guide available - think it was 10tl. One can follow the various paintings on the first level and second level before entering the panorama. Is worthwhile reading the plaques...More

Visiting a place for just a paint! Without any visuals, animations, shows, small movie,.... or even audio/sound effects!! No single useful information you can get about the battle, planning, obstacles, map,..... Turkey can make something more worthy than this useless small building.

I liked this modern museum too much. It is a well-set up and organized museum, located directly next to the Topkapi tram station inside a park. It needs almost an hour to see it. In my opinion, the audio guide is a must, and there...More

Must see museum. Really enjoyed it. Go during the week days as not so busy. Bit noisy with all the school kids coming for tours all the time but they generally come and go quick so you get the quiet times between groups. Read up...More

I don't think you need one. Just pick up the brochure that is in English. It does not need more explanation

No more than a half hour. You go to a view point and you can see everything from that view point
