Visited by chance. But I may add, a great surprise. Would definitely recommend. But take your time, and a camera, you ll have things to do around here. Not only see, experience, but also learn.

This is the museum of Islamic Science and Technology and it tells the story of science and technology that has not been taught in Western education institutions, and gives full credit to the Islamic and Asian scientists and all the great achivements.

This was a technology and transport museum and a real gem! Situated in a beautifully renovated space on the Golden Horn, it is easy to access by ferry from Eminonu (catch the ferry to Eyup and get off at Haskoy). Clean, well-labelled in English and with an amazing variety of technology and vehicles. Admission is very cheap compared to some... More

Fantastic, grand exhibition of an era, from submarines to gorgeous Riva runabouts to cars and doll houses, train toys, and everything in between. By the water. Nice views of an arm of the Bosphorus. Not to be missed !

Good research tour for pupils. But it is concept of a dozen personal collections. So conceptually it is far from Museum.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
