Must see

You must see this museum during your stay in Istanbul. So many old cars and working wheedles. Also visit the restaurants. Each has a different concept.

Everything about this museum is first class. The staff, the exhibits, the collection: wow. Boats, cars, submarines, planes, and on and on. You can bring anyone and everyone here and they will all have a positive experience as there is something for everyone. Easy to get to by ferry, too.

This really is a superb set of multiply excellent collections: bicycles, motorbikes, classic cars, planes, steam trains, boats and even real submarine. My only regret was taking my 4 and 6 year-old sons, who loved it (especially the interactive science play area with 30+ exhibits) but didn't allow me to spend the time I would have liked. Nice collection of... More

It was amazing! Lots of antique cars, trucks, boats and even a submarine. All explorable and enjoyable. When I walk in the museum, it was like a time travel in industrial development. It was very well organized and warmly managed. During the museum visit, a must have stop is Halat Restaurant. It was December 24 when I visited it. So... More

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.
