If you are interested with modern art you must see this museum (gallery). I am visiting this place when i find any time to refresh my sprit. I even had a chance to meet with Mr Dogancay once when he was alive.

This is a museum that we frequently visit and one we will continue to take our three-year daughter Jacqueline Nil to long as we live in Istanbul. The late-Burhan Doğançay was a lucky man, one who was able to travel the world and the seven seas, documenting his travels with his camera and canvas. My wife Özlem and I were... More

This was a very small exhibition of black and white photos and I enjoyed it a lot. It is in the European side of Istanbul, a short walk down the hill from Taksim square. It is free to get in and the inside of the building is very clean and modern. Well worth a visit.

I entered and it was a 3 floor gallery with different images taken bythe artist DOGANCAY over a forty something years from different parts of the world! The photos are educative, ,realsitic, spontaneous... More

Tucked away among the bustling alleys of Beyoglu you'll find this great little gallery, packed to the rafters with work from one of Turkey's most talented artists. My partner and I visited in December and very much enjoyed the exhibition of photographs on display. Though small, the gallery is perfectly formed - by all accounts Docancay was prolific and it's...

Not too far off the main shopping street, the museum is in a very humble location on a corner. I was positive we were in the wrong place initially so make sure you are absolutely sure where it is before setting off - there are no signs to guide you! You also have to press the buzzer to enter -... More

we found this museum when we were strolling on the streets in the back of Istiklal. It was a lovely private museum. We spent a short but good time in a calm atmosphere.

Every time I have the chance to visit Istanbul I don't pass out on the Doğançay museum. Not only you get to see his one o kind artworks you also find yourself in a very friendly atmosphere. Free of charge!
