I couldn't even imagine how huge the collection of this museum is! If you are in Istanbul and have any interest in technology then don't miss. If you come with kids - don't miss either, they'll enjoy it more than anything in the city. Cars, planes, ships, trains, submarine, working models of engines, full-size model of olive oil factory -... More

Planes, trains, cars, boats, submarines, bycycles, motorcycles, different types of engines, even an olive oil factory are displayed along with first industrial professions and tools. A short ride with an old train is part of the entrance fee, however, submarine tour is subject to additional payment. Inside the boat, there is also an exhibition on model boats. A part of... More

A treat for every one, young and old, an eclectic collection of transport related items, including a DC-3 and a submarine, but also a superb collection of dolls houses.

One of the best maintained and richest museums in Istanbul that mainly focuses on Industry and industrial history. There are many historical pieces such as an old passenger plane, a submarine, many trains and an incredible car collection. The transportaition is easy and the price is acceptable. Recommended for families especially.

This is more of a collection than a museum as such - it has beautiful collections of a wide variety of items (eg cars, boats, bicycles, prams, household equipment etc) There are working models, as well as a ride on mini-train. Definitely well worth a visit. The collection is vast and well set out.

After spending quite some time in Istanbul and visiting almost everything that should be visited, I have to say that in Rahmi Koc Museum we had the most fun! It needs at least 3-4 hours - there is a very interesting and informative section about Ataturk which should not be missed. But the biggest fun is the huge (huge!!) collection... More

Where to start? Very informative first section on Kemal Ataturk with interesting newspaper clippings from the 1920s, Time Magazine covers, and some of his clothing and other personal items. Some great photos, too. Then, on a different note, there are rooms of the most magnificently restored cars. There are areas with old tramway cars and buses, rooms full of seagoing... More

A friend tipped is off about this museum and it's well worth a visit. Lots of old cars, ships, a sub, doll houses. An eclectic but fun mix. We got the ferry there and back - there is one an hour and we were lucky with timing. Well worth a few hours of your day. You get the boat down... More
