We went to see the temporary exhibit of Ottoman shoes. It is an excellent, informative exhibit placing the footwear into the context of daily, festive, western and local attire. The museum also houses a permanent exhibit of archeology - excellent displays showing amazing remains of previous occupants of the eastern Mediterranean. The seaside aristocratic house, itself is a delight to... More

If you are spending a day along Bosphorus in Istanbul, this is the museum to visit for sure... You can take a boat tour and get there from Sariyer port...Good selection artifacts and exhibitions to visit by all ages...There is a temporary exhibition about 19th and 20th century women shoes at the moment...Highly recommended...

How to get there: a tram to Kabatas and then the 25 E. This is the same bus that will take you to the Sakib Sabanci Museum but it is a bit further up. You want the Saniyer district but the driver did not know where the museum was so keep your eye out for the fabulous wooden house you... More

This is a very interesting museum, it combines stunning archeology with great late Ottoman period art and interior decoration in an elite house from the late 19th century. A real gem. Also nicely located along a lesser known shore of the Bosphorus. Great museum shop with beautiful things. And the garden is beautifil too. Just take a taxi (boat) and... More

This museum is the private collection of Ms. Sadberk Kos in her family's Istanbul house. I live in Istanbul and I enjoy taking guests to this museum so they can have a taste of everything in one place. The first gallery is historic Turkish art. There are items from all over the country. My favourite are the 'racy' oil lamps,... More

I really enjoyed this museum. It is housed in two old yali (Bosphorus mansions). The first building has a fabulous collection from pre-history to the Roman era. The second, a more modern Ottoman collection. It only takes a couple of hours to see it all and get a good over-view of Turkish history. From Taksim, take the fenicular down to... More

This private museum uses two large wooden houses (yalıs) side by side to display two amazing collections by members of the Koç family. The first one we saw covered artwork and artifacts from all the ancient Turkish civilizations. The second was devoted to the Ottoman period, with exquisite ceramics, costume, metalware. Unfortunately, no photography. While definitely worth the trip up... More

This museum had a very interesting and intriguing collection of paintings that I had ever seen. The museum was divided into different sections and had paintings matching the theme of those sections. The most dazzling was the Gold section. It was literally a task to keep one’s eyes off of it. The museum had a lot of art lover’s there... More

This museum which is founded and run by one of the the wealthiest families of Turkey is a "must see" if you are interested both in archeology and ethnography. Yes, the museum is far away from the usual touristic destinations of Istanbul but if you have time, you have to make sure you see it. It's situated in a beautiful... More
