4.5/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web
Walk between the trimmed lawns of Miniaturk dotted with more than 100 miniature models of Turkey's great buildings, such as Hagia Sophia, the mausoleum at Halicarnassus, and the Atatürk international airport. As one of the world's largest miniature parks, this open-air site features architectural structures from Istanbul, Anatolia, and even from the Ottoman territories that are no longer part of Turkey. See the ancient city of Ephesus, the bridge over the Bosporus, the Suleymaniye mosque, fairy chimneys, and Mount Nemrut, all scaled down to 1/25 of their original size. A miniature train passes through the paths. Amenities include a cafe, a shop, and a cinema showing a 3-D film about Istanbul.

  • Park "Miniatûrk" in Istanbul is a great place for walks for the whole family and very instructive. The Park collected miniatures of almost all the most famous and prominent landmarks. Differently I would call this a beautiful park-"Turkey in miniature! The Park spent about 2 hours. On the territory there are cafes where you can grab a snack and enjoy the beautiful views of thumbnails, the shore of the Golden Horn and the area North/Eyup with its old, neatly painted in different colors. Miniaturk Park on site children's playground with wooden Trojan horse, swings and a labyrinth with chess, as well as train (Mini Fun Express train) at 24, which goes through the territory that will be very interesting for the children! "Miniatûrk" is divided into three parts-Istanbul and Anatolia (45 exhibits), as well as the territory of the Ottoman Empire (15 items). All in all, the Park offered 105 architectural models made to scale 1:25. Now maybe more, heard that the Park is replenished with new exhibits. Each exhibit includes a reception, to which you can attach your ticket and selecting the desired language listen to the story of one or other attractions. All are invited to 6 languages, among which is the Russian language. I advise you to visit the "Miniatûrk" adults and children alike!

  • This one is a must visit, but unfortunately most of the touristic guides will not talk about it. I think one should visit this first, as it gives a quick glimpse of all the great things you can do and choose from this. It has amazing details of the various historical monuments and backgrounds in Audio with each of the monument. Visited June 2013
  • Entry fee is 30 for a foreigner visitor 20 for citizens 5 for students Museum cards are not accepted here. An interesting place to visit . With the art of small statuses it gives you a clue about all historical and important placed in all Turkey. But mostly showing the Islamic patrimony of the Ottoman Empire, with lots of giant mosques built around Turkey.
  • It's an amazing museum where you are able to see all the amazing places Türkiye has in miniature, with explanations about those places. Really cute!
  • The place is well organized a must visit place specially with the family the kids will love it. You will see all the historical buildings in Turkey in small scale.
  • Must be visited in Istanbul if you're not going to travel everywhere else in Turkey. It has the mini version of almost every important place in Turkey.
