“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

The location of this private museum is in old Ankara (Altindag). I tend to describe distances in Ankara from Kizilay, so the old Ankara is about 4-5 km from Kizilay and expect to pay 15 TL if you take a taxi. Tell the driver you want to go to "Ankara Kalesi" or "Çengelhan Divan Hotel". The museum is right next to the hotel.
Museum consists of 2 stories and one basement. Enrance fee is 6 TL and if you have "Muze Kart" you are entitled to have 1 TL discount:)
There are miniatures of historic trains, cars, electronics, ships etc. that I found very interesting. Rahmi Koc's collection.

“Has an antique bicycle room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We are big bicycle fans and the antique bicycle room was the highlight of our visit. The restaurant in the museum is also excellent and since we were staying in the Divan Hotel next door, we ate there several times.
