Go by ferry to this attraction using your Istanbul card. A really quirky history of all things mechanical. Not complete and not really in-depth, but nice anyway.

I call Rahmi M. Koc Museum a time machine traveler! The place steps you back in time and future! Pity we only discovered it towards the end of our trip. After our visit to Istanbul's "must seen sights" we needed to see that "extra" thing...and Rahmi Museum was beyond than a good choice. We were a bit worried whether our... More

Man, traveling to Turkey with a six-year-old boy in the middle of the summer is not a picnic. I was starting to think that maybe we were crazy for choosing this city...in this 90 + degree heat. But this is the one attraction where TripAdvisor did not lead me astray....we got here later in the afternoon late July and there... More

Well curated museum and while I have no young children, as a museum professional, I was pleased to see the museum children-friendly and encouraging learning activities. Staff helpful and pleasant, refreshments easily available and well priced. Object labelling is clear, accurate and in two languages (Turkish and English). Full marks for working exhibits! The collection scores well on both the... More

Seems like this is an easy place for teachers to take kids on field trips, so it was packed with school groups. All the old cars were interesting -- but they were American and I can see those in museums at home. In fact, a lot of the stuff was American. Not much Turkish.

Great museum! Our 6 year old boy enjoyed as much as we did. Everything is there: from impressive old timer collection to challenging tasks for adults and kids.
