  • The Koç Museum is a marvelous experience. From vintage cars to a real submarine, this place gives an interesting insight into the evolution of transport and lifestyle. The descriptions of items are clear and informative, available in Turkish and English. The museum itself is neatly organized and very clean, with a lovely cafeteria and reasonable prices. The submarine tour is a unique thing to do, lead by a marine officer who can answer all your questions. The only shortcoming for foreigners is that the tour is in Turkish, so it's better to go with someone who can translate. Overall, completely worth the time and a great way to spend a rainy day in Istanbul.
  • The museum of transportation was a visit just by chance but I loved every minute of it. An amazing display of antique cars, bikes, trains, horse carriages, prams, cycles etc. It had some well mounted planes and lots of sail boats. The railway train engines and carriages were beautifully displayed. Even had the Sultans carriage. This was a 1 hour visit which is a must do in Istanbul.
  • I can guarantee that this museum is better than your expectations. I've been to many different kind of museums in all around Europe and never thought a museum in Turkey (with this cheap price) can be my favorite. Well endeavored amazing museum, thank you!
  • It's the best place of Istanbul! Museum has a lot to see, so when you go there be ready to spend no less than 3 hours. Great for children! History, science, arts, cars and trains all together in an amazing gallery. Very impressive!
  • Very nice place! So interesting and fascinating! One can easily spend the whole day there! The visit will be equally interesting for both adults and kids. Highly recommend!
