I visited this museum twice and both times, I was amazed at the displays. I was lucky to witness the changing of the guards which was done in true military spirit. My only complain is the ladies toilet...maintenance is needed urgently!

For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area
just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used
mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its
