  • It is a small museum in nearby place of Topkapı sarayı. It has three parts. So after visiting Topkapı sarayı you can visit also it. If you visit this museum, it will help you to grow a concept about carpet. You know that, carpet is a tradition of Turkey. The ticket price of Halı Müzesi is 10 lira for general people. For students, who lives in Turkey it is only one lira.
  • Very nice, if you like to know about carpet industry in many different types and views, It's better to see there.... There is Persian description for each masterpiece that need to translate in English with better view at least...
  • You can find pure Iranian culture in every Iranian carpet. Very nice place for spending time. I suggest everyone to visit this museum.
  • No flying carpets.
  • Nice carpets!! Can't wait to come back next year!
