Neighborhood: Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighborhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.

Special for Besiktas lovers

If you are a fan of Besiktas fooball club you will feel such nostalgia that will remain with you for some time. There is also a shop where you can buy shirts/shorts etc. or souvenirs with Besiktas logos. The price is affordable even in the shop.

Very stressful

I am from the UK and have done a few stadium tours although the stadium itself is brilliant I hated the tour. I bought an audio guide as I don’t understand or speak Turkish. The audio guide was in English and was good but the staff would not let me listen to the guide at the spots where the numbers were so when it said things like you are now looking at the spot where the stairs are and all the results of Beşiktaş unbeaten season I wasn’t I was looking at the stadium stands. I explained to the guide that I wanted to listen to the audio guide I had bought and he insisted I move on. He constantly “man marked” me and ushered me on as swiftly as possible I left the stadium with a stitch and arm pits like a stand up comedian.

Excellent museum , covering social history, not just sport.

We were staying in the Sultanahmet area and the Vodafone Arena was easy to reach via tram from Sirkeci to the Kabatas terminus, then a short walk. The museum costs 25 Lira to enter and is on two floors, with a lift available. It has an extensive collection of artifacts, photographs,trophies etc as well as inter-active games. Personally, I found the videos of the stadium modernisation most interesting, together with the film of some of the club's greatest European football achievements. There is also an extensive section on other sports, especially basketball. All in all, you could quite easily spend an hour in the museum , to do it justice.
There was also a stadium tour available, again for 25 Lira, which, again was scheduled to last for an hour. I'm sure this would have been excellent value for money too but I'd run out of time after the museum. Note, you also get excellent views of Besiktas' Stadium from the Europe/Asia Big Bus Tour.

Brilliantly curated museum with areas for adults and children and interactive exhibits which will wow both! Even those not overly interested in football should enjoy this museum as it reflects an interesting period of social history and is huge fun.

Great for football fans
Jul 2017 • Friends
A quite interesting museum located in the new Vodafone Arena. Definitely worth the visit if you're a fan of Turkish football or football in general. It includes a lot of details from the club's history, presented in a vivid manner and with the help of some interactive exhibits. I haven't been to Fenerbahçe's or Galatasaray's museums, so I can't compare them, but this one I highly recommend.
