4.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web
Get lost in the art-filled halls of Pera Museum, whose numerous galleries put a special focus on Orientalism in the 19th century. The building itself took over the space of the old Hotel Bristol, founded in 1893, and was renovated to feature a Victorian-era facade. On the first floor, stop to admire collections of colored tiles and pottery, as well as Anatolian weights and measures. From here, continue upstairs to see more than 300 works by European, Ottoman, and Turkish masters, including Osman Hamdi Bey. Several exhibits change regularly, so look for something new each time you visit. To visit Pera Museum and other attractions in Istanbul, use our Istanbul itinerary planner.

  • Does intresting events. The colour scheme on some translations difficult to read
  • I could give a full grade for its 'wheel chair user friendly' facility. The mover at the ground floor and the elevator saved us to enjoy the museum. Every floor have a different theme, and I and my sister liked it. Not a big museum but full of interesting art pieces.
  • Very poor exponates. this is not art. This is 10 bad pictures of turkish leaders and 5 old cups.
  • What an amazing museum. If you can only visit one museum in Istanbul, I would highly recommend the Pera Museum. It has a great space and layout, their exhibitions rock, and their staff is very friendly!
  • Awsome
