The museum is a bit out of Istanbul , but really worth the visit. It is located in a beautiful house on the Bosphorus and was the first private museum in Turkey. There is a very informative section on the family who opened it . The various sections include displays of Turkish- Islamic culture and also an archaeology section. When... More

It's seems very far away, but if you take the metro to Haciosman and the the #25 bus which drops you off in front of the museum, it's very easy. They have a small but well cultivated collection. Don't miss the fez blocker and Ottoman dresses.

Wonderful museum, cheap ticket price, and nice cruise to get there on Bosphorus, from Eminonu to Sariyer. It has, among other things, an amazing collections of clothes, from the otoman period.

My wife and I enjoyed several hours touring the excellent exhibits in Turkey's first private museum. Turkey's culture is complex, resulting from its varied and long cultural heritage. The collections focus on the Ottoman period, plus a separate building of relics from far earlier times. With much focus on Ottoman clothing and home decorations, assembled by a powerful mother-daughter collection... More

This private museum is one of my favorites in Istanbul. Has two sections. The archaeological part gives you a great perspective of the history of Istanbul. Then the other part has a wonderful collection of Ottoman artifacts from ceramics to textiles. Note that the museum is closed on Wednesdays.

We were there this July and could hardly bring ourselves to leave with our group tour. We could have spent another hour, at least, in this handsomely arranged collection of ancient stone and ceramic objects.

Benifits from being a collection of a discerning women. Stunning building and grounds. The "traces of ancient ages" is a quick and informative tour through the ages. The museum . Easy to get to
