Panorama 1453, Istanbul

(4.3/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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 went for the umpteenth time with students, quite beautiful and that's what's missing in our country to go in a different work, sights, özellkle artists on the ceiling, you must find the hidden FATİH silhouettes at the clouds;)

  • Great beautiful panorama that the whole story told about the conquest of Constantinople. Rent certainly also an audio tour for additional info if you are in the panorama. After the panorama you can conquer the real walls of Constantinople itself just a little by it, and/or to walk along. We found it a great beautiful experience as the icing on the cake. Easy to reach by tram T1 stop topkapi (not to be confused with Topkapi Palace;)) just do so.

  • Panorama taking Constantinople is located quite far from the center of Istanbul, zabredesh' not here by accident, it is necessary to go by tram through the city. However, it is worth a trip, entrance to the Museum is inexpensive (10 LIRA), and Panorama made a very bright and impressive. The Museum is located near the ruins of the walls of Constantinople, that you can touch and examine.

  • 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
