My wife and I really enjoyed our visit to the Istanbul Modern Museum. In November 2017 there was a lot of construction that meant gaining access to the Museum was slightly more convoluted than it needed to be. We could not get access to the...More

Popped here on my last day as it was close to my hotel and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. It's in a great setting and overlooks the Bosporous so persevere with getting through the construction to it. It was a really relaxing place...More

This is a nice museum but I just walk there a few hour. Should have a place for some food and beverage.

I was there for the Istanbul Biennial. I try to a few times each year. The Museum represents Turkish Modern art so good that I take a look at the collection each time. There is a good restaurant with great views.

We really enjoyed the main exhibition here having come across it on the tram route on the way to the Dolmabahce Palace, although we are not very knowledgeable about modern art. The balcony outside has fantastic views of the City.

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
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,
