This is not a museum with a lot of scientific information, but more a memorial to the city that was, and a striking photographic display of the horrors and trials people faced on that fateful day. The museum architecture resembles a collapsed building and the mood is subdued. There is a large diorama of the city showing where people died and the areas worst affected. Definitely worth a visit.

It is a museum which automatically simulate a big earthquake. After 1999 EQ 7.8 Richter Scale and more than 40.000 died in Marmara region the Sakarya Simulating EQ Museum builded. I went there one more only because I lived 1999 EQ and we stayed the collapsed building for 3 hours. This is really very similar to real one.
