“A modern museum for all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

This museum has art in several forms. Paintings, mobiles, scuptures, and even video. If art can be said to be entertaining to the masses, then this must be it. The art museum has a very nice full menu, large restaurant on the second level. We combined this with a climb to the Galata tower.

“World class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

This gallery was excellent. Full of really interesting Turkish pieces, I could have spent double the amount of time here. I had only 1.5 hours, but you should budget at least 2. There are two floors with lots of gallery rooms and don't miss the hallway to the library with all of the suspended books. They have a nice gift shop and a cafe where you can rest with coffee and a meal. There is a train station just outside where you can catch the train back to Sultanahmet or wherever you are staying. Enjoy!

“beautiful museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Wonderful and thought provoking art pieces! Great library with artful book display and the restaurant offers lovely views. The "young artists" building was not open the day we went, I would love to have seen what is in there. The grounds are great for kids to burn off some steam, too!
