The new location of the museum is in the historical neighborhood, Pera. The neighborhood hosted many artist studios duch as Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu.
The new building is smaller then the original location, so it does limit a bit the possibility to expose the works in...More

Some really incredible pieces in here, each room was well curated. Good gender balance across the featured artists, which is always a plus!

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.
