It's an amazing museum! Even those who have not (yet) read the book, it's totally worth of visiting. It has a great collection of items on display, which together with a beautiful building, in which the museum is located, create a nice nostalgic atmosphere.

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
