If you are interested in history you will find this place interesting, it is a sort of the Constantinople conquest museum. Once inside take the time to read the little texts in English (the letters are slow and the plates are down, so it will not be easy) - what a pity! Elsewhere you will spend 3 Euros for seeing...

I would say that this is a modern museum, explaining history in an interesting way. At first I was about to leave, but when visited the second floor display, it was really amazing. One issue to consider, even though we had an audio explaining each and every display, the information was not enough, most of the information is written in... More

I was expecting something more from this panorama. The fact that this was a monumental day in Turkish history made me assume I will see somethings great. At the end it is basically several paintings with narratives and thats about it. The big 360 panorama is well-made but at the end it just a painting. Since this was created in... More

Real and authentic work of art. Great panorama which encapsulates the important parts of Istanbul's history. With it's audio guide that gives rich information and sound effects about the war, it brings the feeling of reality like you were witnessing on the spot of what had happened in the history. Amazing and great experience. I highly recommend this attraction.

Good place for pictures. It depicts the conquest of Constantinople in 1453 complete with the original canons. The picture is three dimensional and covers 2350 square meters. The work depicts extremely minute details with 10000 human figures. This is one of 30 panoramic museums in the world. In the work there are no lines or borders. One is unable to... More

The museum contains a striking panoramic painting of the conquest of Constantinople by the Ottomans in 1453. You can get there from the Topkapi stop and the painting will certainly dazzle you.

You can see the leader Mohammad AlFateh, the army, the wounded soldiers, the different leaders, the Constantine wall and much more. This battle is worth teaching at... More

Reading this you are probably checking whether it's worth it to go or not. The answer is definitely... GO! We found this place only because we got lost, and I wasn't even going to go in. But wow when I did go in it blew me away. Get the audio guide, and listen to all the information at the paintings... More
