Panorama 1453, Istanbul

4.3
#11 of 88 in Museums in Istanbul
Known primarily for its giant painting depicting the Conquest of Constantinople, Panorama 1453 presents history in 360 degrees. Established in 2009, the history museum houses a world-famous panoramic portrayal of the 1453 battle that effectively put an end to the Roman Empire. The huge painting presents the moment when the invading Ottoman troops broke through the city's Byzantine defenses. The realistic image measures 38 m (125 ft) in diameter and covers an area of about 2,300 sq m (25,000 sq ft). An accompanying soundtrack enhances the viewing experience by recreating battle cries and cannon blasts.

  • I think it's a great Museum. Area a bit wider, though, and it's much nicer animated simulations koyulsa. Museum card does not exceed a little bad but generally very good. Recommend.

  • Easy to get to the Museum-tram T1 until the stop (not to be confused with Topkapi Topkapi Palace). The Museum is located in a quite pleasant Park, particularly the resort on a sunny day, in the immediate vicinity with a fortification wall Feodosievoj. Visiting the Museum is not includes a historical map-need to pay 15 lire. Panorama of the battle on the impressive besshovnom canvas is beautifully drawn shapes, sometimes there is a sense of 3D, and it seems that they are here will start to move. Reinforce the impression the sounds of combat, cris, marshev music. Although there are historical inconsistencies in clothing warriors, but it's more likely for connoisseurs, and rendered does not prevent:) If you are travelling with children of school age, keep-it seems to me they should enjoy:) Now about sad. How good is panorama, as bad exposure! It-nikakushhaja, frankly bad. I understand that this Museum focuses exclusively on residents and tourists there are extremely rare, but ... Explanatory texts to the exposition only in Turkish, a word of English. About multi language description not dream:) Without audio guides (Russian is) out there doing nothing but and he frankly bad historical bloopers and my strongest surprise victory over Constantinople without a single mention of Constantinople!:) Summary: view once-could be interesting if you are interested in history. But this is not the place in which you will want to return. Somehow they ruined this potentially excellent project.

  • The best place in Istanbul. I believe it is the best. I will definitly visit this place if I come to Istanbul. Even it did not give you full details about this battle in 1453 when M. Fatih entered Istanbul, but it put you inside the battle to feel you were there in 1453.
  • Never seen a better place. They hardly got me out of there. I fall in love with this place. One of kind, in short.
  • If you want to know how Constantinople fell to the Ottomans, this place offers panoramic 3D motionless picture with audio guides in major languages. The almost 360D panoramic arena is breathtaking in my opinion. Try it. I have enjoyed it everytime! #LetsGuide
  • Not as impressive as I expected it to be, the painting itself is very well done. But in a rather small scale compared to the event itself so it doesn’t evoke the feelings it should. The information is very lacking as well... i imagine it would be a great idea as an exhibition if it were more interactive
  • If you are an history loving tipe, please go. There is so much to see and "feel". Great place.
