The location is romantic and central. The curator is also the Nobel Prize Owner Turkish Novelist, Orhan Pamuk. Must see

Better if you read the book "the Museum of Innocence" by Orhan Pamuk, before you went to see the Museum itself. Do get the headset for an extra 5 Liras--you hear Pamuk and his principal protagonist in the novel--Kamal--narrating the guided tour.

Hidden gem, we walked past it twice before we found out-thanks to the gentleman who came out! Hadn't read the book but thanks to the audio tape (5 TL per person) we got an idea of what the museum was about. Beautifully designed and full of objects to discover. Highly recommended, thanks! :)

The Museum of Innocence expresses the nature of Love and a society constructed on the values of conservative values...but if you read and view a bit deeper we start to feel the pulse of a place and its' people...a truly unique city that is created through the rituals and traditions - an insight into a supposed bygone era... The Museum... More

I was half way through the book which itself provides deep insight into the emotions of the characters in the background of a complex culture which imbibes the western values while rooted to its own traditions. The master storey teller make you feel it is no more a fiction. The museum is an installation which takes the reading experience to... More

You should read the book before you go to the Museum of Innocence. There are a lot of interesting things to see.

I'm not sure what you would make of this museum if you had not read the book. But if you have, it will bring the narrative into another dimension. For those interested in the power of objects and who understand when we say, "Objects have agency," this museum will provide an experience to remember. Layered with meta-ness, the museum builds...

My favorite museum of all times, great concept, I totally recommend the audio guide even if you had read the book* but especially if you did not. ...and take your time, it's fascinating! *The Museum of Innocence is a novel by Orhan Pamuk, Nobel-laureate Turkish novelist published in 2008.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
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.
