  • Journey into the past, all you need to go to one of the rare place necessarily. I think you should see the little kids, and I'm sure if your camera with you. Very nice memories.

  • Anyone interested in any technology that is worth at least a half-day schedule. Cars-Rolls-Royce, the American "barge", a machine of Harry Potter ...

  • This museum is one of the best museums to visit in Istanbul. If you love to see machines or industrial equipment, model trains and even an original submarine and planes,this is the place to visit. Be sure that you come early, maybe when they open at 10 o'clock, because you will be spending all your time and it won't be enough. Prices are ok, even the souvenirs are reasonably priced. Just come and see this summarized history of industry and technological advancement.
  • Amazing experience exploring the history of transportation. Models of anything you could imagine. Cars, Trains, Ships, Submarines... It also has alot of industrial products and machines. You need 3 hours to finish it all
  • Excellent place to visit especially if you have kids. Multiple activities and things to do ride a train a steam boat going into submarine a carousel. Multiple snack places that is very cheep.
  • It includes a wide variety of vehicle collection ranging from a canoo used by natives of Panama in centuries ago to ferrari released in 2016. There is also a planetarium to visit there. You can easily and should devote your whole day to see everything. By the way, The submarine that was used in ww2 is a must see, as well.
  • This museum shows you the development of transportation in modern Turkey and examples of the most rare and unique model ever built. The collections are phenomenal.
