Chraming little museum that's a bit on the expensive side, value wise, unless you've read the book and love it. I was in the middle of the novel when I went so yes, it was quite an experience seeing the little mementos. I can't however imagine how this can be enjoyable to anyone unfamiliar with the novel. It's a lot... More

Even though I haven't read the book I visited the Museum of Innocence and it was very nice. On several floors it shows boxes each devoted to one chapter of the book. Some great details can be found if you take time to investigate each box for longer. I have still not read the book but am definitely sure I... More

I found there wonderful ! I read the book after I had visited the museum and enjoyed a lot ! Rather than being an amazing romantic novel that was a great tale of Istanbul between 1975 and 1984 . The book has 83 chapters and there are 83 cabinets in the museum full of old objects like old clocks ,... More

I read the book by Orhan Pamuk two years ago and never got a chance to see the museum until two years later which was a shame because I'd forgotten some of it. Still, it was a fascinating, albeit small collection and its great value lies in getting a glimpse of Istanbul life mainly in the 50s. the city is... More

this place is full of poetry. the museum, in a small house, presents a collection of object s in resonance with the book by Pamuk. everyone will find something surprising, different, charming. with my 20-y.o. daughter, we loved it. after the visit, you can enjoy the area, with a few interesting antiques shops.

I've been there twice. The first time I bought the book and before reading it. I enjoyed very much listening to the audio guide accompanying the exhibited items with Orhan Pamuk voice. Going through the story from afar and before knowing all the details of the novel. and the second time I was there I even spent more time after... More

This museum is based on a book with the same name. Almost every chapter of the book gets its display. I haven't read the book before visiting the museum. I still enjoyed every bit. I find it quite fascinating to create a museum based on the characters of a book.

Based on Orhan Panuk's novel, this tiny house enlightens about Istanbul rather painful (for many) europeinisation in the period around late sixties till early 2000ies.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
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 nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
