we were looking forward to both the art and the architecture but unfortunately the museum had to move for renovations - still worth the visit and we saw good street art on our way there

The museum is closed at the moment for about a year or more due to new building construction. They moved it to a smaller building in Beyoglu area, check their web site for new address.
