We had not planned on visiting it but when my daughters saw a real submarine outside this museum we decided to visit it. We saw thousands of objects from different eras here. There were road, rail, aviation and marine vehicles on... More

The museum is a great example that Turkey has a lot of things to offer in very diverse areas. In this museum you will find advances in the means of transportations and communication, ranging from bicycles to submarines to airplanes, so it's an interesting and different museum to visit in Istanbul.

Koç family, particularly Mr. Rahmi Koç is the greatest philantrophist in Turkey. Besides many cultural activities, museums and foundations they have created this ecclectic museum that encomposses industrial and manufacturing history with unique and priceless examples. From naval ships to submarines, old tailor signs to classic cars and many more. It is a once in a lifetime experience which you... 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.
