The Koc museum is a technology museum full of, historical mechanical, electronics parts, cars, bicycles, boats, ship models, even a submarine and a classical Istanbul city ship. Is has a nice part for kids where they can see/experience some scientific games/experiments. Nice cafes inside. You can combine your visit with Miniaturk which is very close.

I knew about the Koc museum from reports by members of family and I was looking forward to visiting it. I had already seen part of it from the water. And it didn't disappoint me at all. It is incredible what a person's generosity can do when we follow our dreams and passions and share them with other people. It's... More

Having been to science/car/ rail/ ship and industry museums from Santiago to Sydney, have to say this is one of the worlds best. Huge car, bike, train, tram, plane etc collection, and across the road in the old building, amazing museum of everything from cinema to household appliances. Catch the ferry up to the door.

After reading about this museum we took the local bus from Eminonu. The Rahmi M. Koc Museum is a must for lovers of anything with wheels. Vintage and classic cars, motorbikes, trains, boats, toys etc etc. A fantastic collection that is well set out and beautifully displayed. Be prepared for a long visit.

It was a very short visit, a prize ceremony and concert, and a cocktail beforehand. But it is a nice place, beware of the traffic while going there.

Great way to spend a rainy day in Istanbul. More cars, boats, and trains then I have ever seen in one museums. There is a motor demo teaching how cars work. There were brides and grooms everywhere getting pictures made by red sport cars. My husband was climbing up and down very happily. Lots of kids having fun. Spacious and... 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.
