My visit of this museum was not planned, and I was very impressed by it. It's not necessary to read the book before visiting the museum, but it is good to know the story. I'm starting to read the book now :)

Nice small museum, a nice house in old city Istanbul. You should definitely take the audio guide, which clearly explains and illustrates each of the exhibited collection of items that reminds Kemal of Fusun, his close and so distant love. The story comes to life in a very impressive way. You read the book? Go to this museum. You did... More

Tricky to find but well worth the visit and quite incredible to see the collection of objects mentioned in the novel.

There are few moments when you just forget everything around and feel something special for a fiction. It was so at that very moment when i saw Füsun's brooch. And the music behind... I, then, felt that we were wandering in a beautiful city we had lost which dwellers had lost once long ago. Great job Mr. Pamuk. -It essential... More

I havent read the book before visit but the museum had sufficient elements to make an experience with a pure sense. Dont forget to read the pamuks manifest in the ground floor.

A great spot to philosophise on the nature of museums and story, while learning about Istanbul. I didn't think you needed to read the book first; I bought in in the bookshop after and read it along with Orhan Pamuk's "Istanbul" while I was on holiday, and loved doing so.

This museum is a delightfully confusing place, where fiction becomes reality. I had to stop several times while walking around to google, and confirm, that Kemal was not in fact a real person. I did not read the book before I came, since I was in the neighborhood I just stopped by, but I can guarantee you would not understand... More

Clearly a lot of effort has been put into this museum and it was rather charming, albeit small. Unfortunately, it made me wish I'd read the book before going!

This is something came as a surprise but Pamuks museum provide fresh experience of how some people live in very changing place and time as Turkey was some 30-40 years ago. Interesting inside in ordinary things of the era with some examples and analysis on society changes in Turkey. And yet very human touch is here unlike of those dusty... More

Great experience if you read the book. The idea of the museum is unbelievable like it's real rather than a novel.

Staying in Beyoglu

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.
