It's right by the cruise ship jetty so every day another huge liner is in port. Fabulous museum with loads of culture, old and modern and it's sited next to yet another mosque. Lovely restuarant overlooking the Bosphorous, great views over the whole City and great food too. We sat outside in the warm sunshine and enjoyed a glass or two!

Location is a bit tucked away but the museum had a very nice temporary collection, and an interesting permanent collection with mostly Turkish artists.

It was interesting, different and laid out in a way that keeps you intrigued. Easy to get to and not too enormous which means you can see every piece without getting bored.

Fantastic collection of contemporary art in a great modern building. Thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition (and the coffee in the onsite restaurant overlooking the Old City across the water).

Terrific reuse of old warehouse set on Bosporous. Well designed building housing an excellent collection and interesting changing exhibits. The museums provides a welcome insight into contemporary views of modern Turkish politics.

The cafe is a superb place to sit on the waterfront, enjoy the views and shipping traffic and enjoy a nice meal.
