This museum is well-located, just off Istiklal Caddesi. The top two floors of this lovely old building are kept for temporary exhibitions, with the lower 3 floors having permanent exhibits, including art and pottery. I’d suggest starting on the top floor and working your way...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
