Top ways to experience Rahmi M. Koc Museum and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

This would be one of the best interactive museums i have visited. The breadth of displays that let you see how stuff works and understand the internal mechanisms is fantastic. Something for everyone, planes, trains, automobiles, boats. Good food available beside it as well at reasonable prices. 10\10 here, do yourself a favor and catch the ferry.

I find it very hard to entertain my 4 years old toddler in Istanbul but this museum was a hit ! And I Very much enjoyed it myself!
It reminded me the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden, which we love going to. Well maintained with lots to see and learn. Easy to get to on the bus.

Such an interesting museum with exhibits artfully arranged in a historic building. There is something for everyone there...old cars, motorbikes, prams, tea pots, cameras, etc. On one level, each alcove has exhibits of things such as visiting the barber, the blacksmith, the carpet makers, etc.

We loved that you could enter the fantastic old airplanes. There's English translations too for a wealth of knowledge about most on display. Very educational and incredibly interesting.

Absolutely awesome. I came across this gem completely by chance as I was on the ferry and saw the historic SH ferry docked alongside a submarine and my curiosity was raised. The next day I went and was not disappointed. So many incredible exhibits! The museum was clean and well laid out and as I was there at opening time, I only had to share the facility with a handful of other visitors. I’d imagine that in “normal times” aka pre-COVID, hoards of screaming schoolchildren would have swarmed the place as it is a perfect spot for hands-on exploration. Great spot for anyone who loves transportation and especially trains.
