Formerly the Bristol Hotel, built in 1893, the Pera Museum is in my opinion one of the most enjoyable museums and cultural centers of Istanbul.
To find out what you can see right now, be sure to check the site, although the museum is definitely worth a visit for its outstanding permanent exhibition of antiquities, Anatolian and Oriental art.

Chora was part of the Istanbul museum card when I visited, meaning that if you get one to visit the main museums in Sultanahmet you can add a visit to this Byzantine pearl for free.
We loved Chora, it is more beautiful than some very famous museums and sights.
