Doğançay Museum, Istanbul

4.8
#19 of 59 in Museums in Istanbul
Housed in a historic five-story home more than 150 years old, you'll find Doğançay Museum, Turkey's first modern art museum. Since opening its doors in 2004, the museum has predominantly showcased the work of its namesake, Burhan Doğançay, and his father Adil. The museum also hosts an annual art competition for elementary school children to promote art education. Doğançay's obsession with the concept of urban walls echoes throughout the museum through colorful abstract paintings accompanied by some photographs. His father's work consists of impressionistic scapes done with oil on canvas. Knowledgeable guides take visitors through the museum's floors and lend insight to the displayed work.

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
