Rahmi Koç Museum is a very joyful and informative place for both children and adults. Don't miss to book the free of charge train in the information desk. You should visit the submarine. Master Captain Mr.Oğuz İşleyenel guided us and gave a certificate as a souvenir which kids liked the most. They wished he was their teacher at school. Thank... More

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

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.
