All in all a decent modern art museum. Thing is that its "direct competitors" are museums like the moma of ny,of tokyo and of london which set too high a bar.
It has a collection of many turkish modern artists, focusing mostly on expressionism exhibits. I don't know if it was a temporary exhibition. The ground floor has a very nice exhibition about the history of turkish cinema. Quite interesting.
It's a rather small museum,only took us about two hours to go through the whole thing.
It's gonna be a nicer museum probably when they finish constructing their new buildings
