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.

One of the most interesting places you can visit in Istanbul. I loved the classic cars trains and boats. I found the submarine cool. The place is great if you have kids they will enjoy it. It has different parts and in all it is quite a nice hang out .will definitely enjoy going there again.

This is simply an amazing find. We have been to Istanbul six times and we thought we had seen and experienced everything. Well, we were wrong. We went to this museum on the strength of TripAdvisor traveler recommendations. We allowed an hour for this attraction. Four hours into it, our legs gave out and we quit even though there was...

Private museum. Had cars, trains, planes, boats...thinking it was just for the boys,,,I was readily dismissing. But boy oh boy, was I surprised!!! I lOVED it! Such an amazing repository of moving vehicles and a small section dedicated to Ataturk and a nicely tucked away Maths museum for children (the bubble machine was a real hit with my girl!). They...

We didn't know much about Rahmi Koc museum but went there on a whim along with our visit to Miniaturk. Koc museum is fantastic! The best collection of classic cars I've ever seen in the world, along with fascinating displays of engines and other industrial equipment, plus airplanes. We paid the extra charge for the submarine tour, which was very... More

Mr Koq has the money to indulge his interests and the restoration of the buildings and the items on display are all very tasteful and must have cost a small fortune. He should be very proud of this museum. You could easily spend an entire day here if you wanted but a few hours is probably enough for most. As... More
