Wow,it was one of the best.I liked the cars and old machines,especially the one for making olive oil.We had fun.It is also located by the Golden Horn so that we could go there by boat from Eyüp easily. I recommend every Turkish Citizens and the tourist to go there if they ever find a chance.

Its a wonderful museum - rare to find so much variety : air, water, road transport. A lot of history here.Cafetaria by the water was very nice. The submarine is also an added attraction.

If you love classic cars, old boats, plane, trains this is a place you should go. Your children also will love it. What I love most is after you finish the museum visit, go the museum restaurant. Either eat something or just have a drink near the water and breath the history inside of you. Fantastic location every minute worth... More

This museum is definitely worth seeing. Lots of cool classic cars, old boats and trains, and a cool science area for kids. The cafe inside is quite cheap - and it's easy to get to from Sultanahmet by taxi or Uber.

The name of this museum kept popping up whenever I searched for things to do with children in Istanbul and our visit there made it clear why. It is an absolute gem of a museum that will delight and fascinate children and adults alike. Its essentially a transport museum with a little bit of history of Kemal Ataturk thrown in... More

This is a museum with very interesting collections of old cars, boats, old computers and even very early washing machines. As part of Koc group we go there for a New Year's dinner party and I always love to stroll inside this lovely museum. I suggest all tourists to pay a visit here.

We passed this on the ferry en route to Miniaturk, and my husband insisted that we try to get back to it another day. We did - and I'm so glad we made the effort! It's easy to get to by ferry from Eminonu: jump off at Haskoy and it's just a couple of minutes walk round the corner. There's... More

Rahmi Koc Museum is like small version of the science museum. You will find a great collection of classic cars which I was fascinated by.

This historical and educational Transport Museum is well worth a visit. My husband and I visited and certainly had a fantastic time. We were most impressed by all the exhibits, the vintage cars, aeroplanes, boats and many more, even dolls houses. The museum is extremely well laid out and informative. It has much to offer to both adults and children.... More

It's a mini version of the Henry Ford museum and if you liked that place, you will like this as well. Especially if you like anything with a motor as I do. This place has it all. It's going to cost you a cab ride there and back on top of admission as it's not really near public transportation. I... More
