  • Advise who rests, all points of interest. Though I am not a male, but so much fun. The whole technique is impressive. I advise all girls and boys and to visiting the Museum. The best time to visit at least half a day to calm all explore, eat there.

  • The Rahmi m. Koç Museum, both small and large are a great boon for:) İstanbul's Centre but transport (public transport etc.) although partially in terms of on the shore of the Golden Horn, a troubled place spread a large area even when very busy due to the fact that you can easily enjoy the tourist attractions and you'll see a lot of artifact that may be of interest to you, great fun for the little ones at the Museum for the rest of the minds of their own in front of a lot of things if you are available to see the suggestion if your choice for comfortable weekday both the trip and on weekends, since food vs. intensity is experiencing only a Museum for the Museum's restaurant, where you can dine in the peg because, in several small cafes and shop, as well as gift you can buy in the little things, we went because we remain 1-2 hours but we went last summer a proposal for enforcing 5 hours by so many fine however during periods of sunny days in winter, I suggest to choose Because migrating a lot of time in the Museum and in the public areas and the seashore from the cold exposure risk due to

  • I believe that this museum should be in any major city. Thus you can save any interesting exhibits, show how they are constructed and how they work.

  • 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.
