History Museum
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.

  • You have to see this to understand and appreciate this attraction. A lesson in history but worth the effort. Wheelchair access available. Entry fee applicable. Unfortunately no credit or debit cards accepted.
  • متحف البانوراما، من المتاحف الجميلة في اسطنبول، يقوم المتحف بتمثيل معركة فتح القسطنطينية على يد السلطان محمد الفاتح بطريقة مبدعة وبمؤثرات صوتية ورسومية بالغة الروعة، ينصح بالشراء من حل الهدايا في المتحف.
  • Small but realistic representation of the siege of İstanbul. It will take you around an hour to fully appreciate the historical facts and events around the siege.
  • This is a must see museum in Istanbul. It shows the epic of the triumph of the best army commanded by the best and young leader in the name of Sultan Muhammad.
  • One of the must go places if you are visiting istanbul, it is basically an atmospheric recreation of conquest of Istanbul, you can get a souvenir coin custom made just for you! Oldukça güzel tasarlanmış gitmeye değer bi müze, imkanınız varsa özel günlerde gitmeyen, anlatılamaz bir kalabalık oluyor
