Istanbul modern museum is by the Bosphorus in the City center (Tophane, Karaköy).
You can check their program on the touch screen boards which are located all around the city. Don't forget to check the beautiful cafe, have a Turkish coffee while enjoying the great view.
Every Thursday is public day, that means free admission.

Something I didn't see on Trip Advisor, but when I went there, they said I needed to buy a ticket even though it was Thursday.

Loved Istanbul Modern on the banks of the Bosphorus. Unlike the ancient mosques and palaces, this was relatively uncrowded when I visited. The art is wonderful, diverse and large scale. Much of it concerns the repression of women so very interesting in a country that is undergoing social conflict. Great restaurant on the balcony overlooking the river.

This proves that Istanbul is more than just mosques! Also, great place to grab lunch on the water.

Like most old cities, you'll realize that all mosques/churches/museums are the same. Well, the Instanbul Modern is such a pleasant departure that talks about life in the vibrant and multilayered city in so many media. Unlike other modern museums where there's a must see piece, the whole collection highlights Turkish artists and their view of the Republic and what it means to be Turkish.

Also, its one of the few places where the building is completely air conditioned, so a great place to spend a day when its too hot and humid outside.

Very diverse and creative, but like other reviewers, I was also impressed with the photo gallery. Humane and powerful photographs. Ordinary people of Turkey's recent history and present deserve not less attention than the glamorous imperial past.
