First seen in a previous visit in Istanbul from the touristic bus, the museum offers a lot of interesting stuff.

Our guide took us to this museum as part of our Golden Horn Tour. We took a ferry from Eminent and was at the museum in 20 minutes. It's a great approach right on the water with a submarine, Dakota air-plane, many small vintage boats. These are all toys of a famous businessman!

I visited this museum after 15 years again with my family. I really loved it and happy that it made a wonderful progress. Location is excellent, Rahmi Koc is a great collection-er of classical cars, trains, planes and lots of other vehicles and so many other things. Surrounding buildings and coffee shops are excellent also, Really, worth seeing this museum.

This is the best museum I have ever visited all over the world. The diamond among Istanbul's attractions, absolutely unexpected in such kind of old historical city. Somewhere It is called a technological museum, but in reality it gives much much more than just a review of a history of technologies. You can see, you can touch, you can try&... More
