4.3/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • 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.
  • Was initially skeptical. Left impressed. I would first walk a little bit along the wall to get a sense of their scale before doing the Panorama Museum. The actual panorama is very well done.
  • Amazing museum... The dome is literally breathtaking... The paintings are awesome... It deserves 10 stars not only 5
  • When i come Turkey for first time from Bangladesh I heard that Panorama is the first Museum of this world. Still now i am not sure about this information. Whatever, panorama is a very good museum. By visiting this museum you can know how the Muslim king faith sultan Mehmet conquered the Istanbul city. It’s located in nearby place of Topakpi tramway and Topkapi metro bus station. So you can go there easily.
  • Incredible, just stunning must be experienced I have visited few places around the world but this one is outstanding. I am a Turkish man and naturally I am not completely bias of the seen. But the work it self is unbelievable. Only thing I missed was a turning platform where the visitor will sits and the panorama moves around him. Nevertheless astonishing work !!!
