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

Please read the book. It's one of the most touching stories ever. If you do, it will be a very emotional experience going to this museum. That being said, my mother who hasn't read the book but knows the storyline loved it too.

In his books, Orhan Pamuk describes meticulously how our emotions and memories are associated with objects. This museum is truly an artistic installation to help the visitor how everyday objects can trigger feelings and how nostalgia works. I visit this museum every time I travel...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
