Like some of the exhibits but very hot walk to get there so didn't take much in! Like the outside installation and then took lift up to the terrace restaurant. Worth going to have a look!

Both the museum and its restaurant should be on every Istanbul travellers itinerary. The restaurant has a lovely terrace right on the waters of the Bosphorus and offers Turkish Italian dishes.

I love museums, I love the restaurants in museums and I love the Museum shops. If you have enough time, a nice thing to do, but if you need to go to a museum, go to the one in your home town. A lovely installation,...More

Great opportunity to get a glimpse into Turkish modern history of contemporary art while you strolling around Istanbul. It also has a nice shop offering many gift choices for the art lovers. Definitely a highlight of our stay there!

I almost passed up the chance to visit the museum but glad I didn't. There is a phenomenal amount to see. A great introduction to Turkish modern art.

I visited the museum without much expectations, but I left happily surprised. It's well done with quite some variety. Check out the restaurant by the bosphorus and the library with the suspended books downstairs.

Not to be missed. While you are submerged in history, take a respite and visit the Museum. A great education is art and sculpture.

Yes, I'll admit it, modern art is not quite as bad as I thought all of my life up until our visit to the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art this morning. Of course, there were those pictures that looked like a kindergarten class group project,...More

Karakoy
Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy

historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,

The museum is closed at the moment for about a year or more due to new building construction. They moved it to a smaller building in Beyoglu area, check their web site for new address.
