Impressive collection (5000+ pcs) of bikes, motors, cars, engines, tractors, ships, trains, planes and a real submarine from ww2 to visit! Very interactive (you can enter inside trains, planes, boats and the submarine) and full of stuff to see! Also contains real size replicas of living history shops (pharmacy, toy store, ship chandler, watchmaker, blacksmith, cobbler, chemist), a sawmill and... More

If you want to get away from the tourist thing, this place is definitely worth it. Great fun, great collection. Take a half day at least. Warning: if entering the submarine bear in mind that the tour is in Turkish. At some point they are going to set off the (crazy loud!) dive alarm and you may get a heart... More

Rahmi M.Koç Müzesi is one of the best private museums in Istanbul,located at the seaside in Haliç area.Very easy to come here by public transportation bus service and several boats from Üsküdar,Karaköy and Eminönü piers.Recommended to visit this very well arranged and maintained Museum as you will find out many interesting and exciting venues to see.

It is a private science museum. I think it is the best science museum in Turkey since there is not state offered science museum.

Especially very suitable for families with children since there are lots of stuff that they love like an old bus, helicopter, trains, motorbikes, cars.. It is like an open air doll-house. Also I am an Airbnb host, having an apartment located 10 mins walk to Taksim Square and very suitable for couples and families. I love meeting people and share... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
