The Rahmi M. Koc Museum was built by a wealthy Turkish man, based on his private collection. The Museum has all sorts of wheeled vehicles. engines and other assorted industrial items. If you like engines, you'll like this museum. Also, the restaurants will keep the worms from biting. The museum deserves half-day visit, and the kids will be entertained.. It's... More

Located in a rather remote area of Istanbul, this museum is built by the richest person of Turkey starting first with his privare collections.

This museum was recommended to us by a local when here on a previous business trip. The museum is excellent with a wide variety of things to see. From working models of car engines, classic cars, ships and planes to horse drawn teams, doll houses and historic past. There is even a submarine for anybody who doesn't mind climbing through...

You must see this museum during your stay in Istanbul. So many old cars and working wheedles. Also visit the restaurants. Each has a different concept.

Everything about this museum is first class. The staff, the exhibits, the collection: wow. Boats, cars, submarines, planes, and on and on. You can bring anyone and everyone here and they will all have a positive experience as there is something for everyone. Easy to get to by ferry, too.

This really is a superb set of multiply excellent collections: bicycles, motorbikes, classic cars, planes, steam trains, boats and even real submarine. My only regret was taking my 4 and 6 year-old sons, who loved it (especially the interactive science play area with 30+ exhibits) but didn't allow me to spend the time I would have liked. Nice collection of... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
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.
