the selection of the collection was suspicious that I couldn't distinguish which was modern or not. Although there was a selection of good Turkish art, I don't think it is limited to that. If you want to see real good art go to the streets.

If you enjoy contemporary art...go.. You will see some wonderful interpretations from national and international artists. I found it easy to get to. Just get off the tram at Tophane and the signs tell you where to go. When I went the advertised exhibitions were smaller than I expected but still great things to see. Stop and have a bite to eat even a glass of wine there... Good all round

Took this Cornish bird a couple of additional boat trips to find it but we'll worth it!( Especially as I wouldn't have seen so much of Istanbul if I didn't get so lost) ! Fed me with energetic inspiration that I really appreciated and yes the glass of wine sitting by the water is just the cherry on the cake!!
