  • This museum is very small compared to its many counterparts over the world - and this is strange, for the history of Istanbul is largely bound to seamanship and shipbuilding. What you can see here is ...  more »
  • It's nice to visit and see old boats, children also enjoyed it with some sculptures of maritime commanders. But boats are high and you can't see well, they should put something to be able to see bette...  more »
  • Nice boats, lots of history, battles and stories, but zero interactivity. Highly recommend Rahmi M. Koc Museum for boats, planes, cars, trains and much more!  more »

  • Great, quiet and open space in the busiest area of Besiktas. Great for kids and adults alike.
  • Not professionally orginized museum but it serves its purpose; show Turkish Maritime story starting from early ages of Otoman Empire.
  • Your Istanbul history exploration isn't complete without visiting this museum. There you'll see the magnificent art of building ships that exists hundreds of years ago.
  • Naval museum.. With ottoman history
  • Someone knows an e-mail of the museum office? Thanks.

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.
