“crowded but not bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

with a good maintenance this place may be very good but I can't say it's wonderful, you can see the famous turkish mosques and historical places, take information about them with audio guide, it takes at least 90 minutes to view all the place, it may be entertained you and especially your kids I think and it's open air if weather is good go spend 1 or two hours there.

“Great place for the whole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

This place has miniture replicas of all the major attractions in Istanbul as well as beyond. It makes for a very relaxing day. They also have a play area and rides for young children. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Istanbul!

“a good little spot to waste a few hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

We visited here on our second trip to Istanbul, don't think it is worthy of a visit on your first time as many other more important places, but well worth it if you have spare time,
There is a boat that goes from kabatas, (just past petrol station), that takes you along the golden horn for 15lira return which covers a cruise at same time.
Inside miniaturk there is a wide range of mini buildings covering all of Turkey and a talking information point at each, you get given a card with barcode for your language.
Also for an extra 12lira there is a helicopter simulator ride over Istanbul which turned out to be better than I expected.
A kids play area and maze also inside if you have kiddies in tow.
A cafe and gift shop inside as expected.
Many buses run outside as well if you prefer that rather than boat although if 4 of you a taxi same cost.

“Very nice, even for grown ups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

It is a nice attraction, especially for children; the only drawback I found is that it has too many Mosques and Graves. Otherwise, everything is very well represented. If you go, do not miss the Helicopter simulator; take the combined ticket for Istanbul and Turkey. Worth it.
