I've always wanted to visit Muzesi Masumiyet because I wanted to see the physical manifestation of the book. The vitrines, objects, images; all heavenly. What was a massive let down was the museum shop which seemed like an aggressive advertisement for Orhan Pamuk. The staff...More

It’s a must see when in Istanbul, especially if you read the novel “The museum of innocence”, by Orhan Pamuh. There are three floors, the first two includes a series of boxes corresponding to each chapter in the book. Each box includes different objects (memories)...More

You had to have read the book otherwise you're just paying (not cheap) for a walk through an Istanbul antique shop.

Such a charming manifestation of a novel imagined, the mind boggled by all the intricate tableaux. Definitely fun for former (and present!) dollhouse players.

This museum is a must see! It’s a very thoughtful, very creative take on a museum. It’s walking through a story book - walking through a place you’ve heard of and finally get to see.

To get a little more specific than the headline of this review, the audio guide is a must if you haven’t read the book (I haven’t yet). I like quirky, unusual museums, so I loved this one. Paying 30 lira for admission (without the guide)...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
