Firstly, the museum wouldn't make much sense if you don't get the audio guide. So get one. The museum is a fascinating approach to blurring fact and reality through actual objects belonging to a particular period, in the context of fictional lives. I would say it is a masterly tribute to sentimentality, humanity and nostalgia while somehow avoiding the path... More

This is a must-see for anyone who has read Orhan Pamuk's "The Museum of Innocence". In fact, bring your copy of your book along and gain free entrance! The book is about love, memory and longing and Pamuk has created an adventure for his readers by creating the real-life musuem he writes about. It is like living inside the book,... More

This Museum is from a Nobel Awarded writer/novelist Orhan Pamuk. Created as the book with same name. It has a very special soul but plase don't go without reading this book. You won't understand.

Please be aware of reading the book before visiting the museum. And please be a aware of the neighborhood since it's a little... More

Better if you read the book "the Museum of Innocence" by Orhan Pamuk, before you went to see the Museum itself. Do get the headset for an extra 5 Liras--you hear Pamuk and his principal protagonist in the novel--Kamal--narrating the guided tour.

Hidden gem, we walked past it twice before we found out-thanks to the gentleman who came out! Hadn't read the book but thanks to the audio tape (5 TL per person) we got an idea of what the museum was about. Beautifully designed and full of objects to discover. Highly recommended, thanks! :)

The Museum of Innocence expresses the nature of Love and a society constructed on the values of conservative values...but if you read and view a bit deeper we start to feel the pulse of a place and its' people...a truly unique city that is created through the rituals and traditions - an insight into a supposed bygone era... The Museum... More

I was half way through the book which itself provides deep insight into the emotions of the characters in the background of a complex culture which imbibes the western values while rooted to its own traditions. The master storey teller make you feel it is no more a fiction. The museum is an installation which takes the reading experience to... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
