Especially the permanent exhibition of modern Turkish art from about 1860 till now appealed to me. Some amazing application of "carpet-weaving" techniques are shown in the form of patchwork and industrial weaving. The temporary exhibitions were a bit disappointing, but as a whole this museum is a highlight in this dazzling city. The restaurant/cafe has a wonderful view over the Bosporus.

If you only have time to visit one museum in Istanbul, come to this one. The exhibits and artists (many of them still alive and actively working) deserve your attention. Because of copyright issues, you can't take pictures inside. You can buy postcards from the reasonably-priced gift shop. I didn't eat at the restaurant, but the view was fantastic.

A great contrast to the antiquities
Fabulous spacious displays. Great range of art installation video photo. Thought provoking. As good as modern art galleries in london paris madrid Edinburgh. The restaurant and setting beside the Bosphorous adds to the spectacular experience. Walking distance from museum of innocence orhan pamuk to further understand modern turkish culture. Our visit to Istanbul would not have been complete without this experience.

Ours was a group visit - 50 students aged 11 - 15 and 9 adults. The students all loved this attraction and would have been happy to spend a bit more time there. Security presence was high and guards followed the students around but this was not an issue as the students were interested and realised the value of the exhibits.
