If you like Science Museum in London, you will like it in Rahmi Koc Museum. And I believe you will like it more as it is in on the seaside with beautiful view. It is amazing definitely. A whole set of old cars, toys, science equipment and many more old devices. The museum is very large so make sure to... More

Although i put the title of my review as "Excellent Place to Visit with Kids in Istanbul", I have to emphasize that it is also a great place to visit for adults? As a person, who has visited several museums in Europe and North America, I can assure you that this is an excellent and unique industrial museum with large... More

When you travel to Istanbul, you can find your self in the path of Ottoman, but wait this country is not called Ottoman anymere, here is Turkey. So if you want to see something about Turkey, the path where this country has come from, Koc Museum is the place to go. You can find many details of Turkish civilisation after... More

A museum like this you will not find often. There you can plenty of vehicles, divided in separate halls, such as automobiles, motorcycles, locomotives and wagons, airplanes, helicopters, a tank and a real submarine - all dating from a wide period of time. There is a hall with the main domestic appliances, given in a transparent cross section, showing how... More

This museum is not a transport museum, it's not a technology museum and it's not a science museum. Neither is it a comprehensive display of historically-important artefacts. It is, broadly speaking, the gigantic private collection of a rich individual who liked cool techie stuff. Thus, you will see steam engines of all types - most of them with buttons to... More
