Really enjoyed my time at the museum. Spent over 5 hours, fully engaged. Great giftshop, interesting retrospective of Turkish art, ordered chronologically and well-placed in historical context, great other smaller exhibitions. It was my second trip to Istanbul and second trip to the museum, and if there's a third trip to the city, I'll definitely make sure to hit this spot up again. Recommended for art lovers who want to gain a better understanding of the culture via the showcasing of local artists that this space affords...

This museum gives you a very good impression of turkish painting which you probably have not sen before. Even if you are only a little interested in art you should visit this place. The restaurant is excellent, and if no cruise ship is bşocking the view. you shouls eat there.
