Not very interesting especially when you are accompanied by kids . Not recommended if you have to spend few days in Istanbul.

Fantastic facility and wonderful exhibition. Check what's on before you go because not all exhibitions may be as good as this was.

“Must See Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Museum is not located very close to old city center, but you can easily go there by taking ferry or bus (not recommended in rush hours). Emirgan, Sariyer, where museum is, wonderful neighbourhood and locals generally prefers here to go to pricey cafe, bar, bistros. Museum has a little park, and would be nice to sit and take a breath under the trees while watching bosporus. Then you can visit museum. Museum has two parts and one part changes according to exhibitions whereas other is dedicated to calligraphies. Strongly advised if you d like to see word-class but a small museum. Ticket price is around 5 euro by March 2014.

“Gorgeous museum with lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

Definitely worth an afternoon trip. The best way to do it is to take Dentur's Bosphorus boat tour that allows you to hop on and off. You can stop at a number of towns to explore, including the one where this museum is located. There are some incredible exhibits here and the grounds and building are gorgeous. There is a lovely restaurant in the museum. However it is a bit pricey. There is also a bistro next to the museum. Definitely worth a visit.
