  • You need to visit Rahmi M. Koc Museum because of the privite collection of old cars, trains, ships, planes. My husband got to the heaven where he was a driver of the yellow Lincoln. But you need to.....  more »
  • It is best to visit when museum opens to avoid the tour groups of local children. The restaurant is excellent but way overpriced.  more »

  • The museum is so big and contains so many exhibits it took us several hours to move around and we it wasn't enough to see all items. It's by far the most wonderful museum we visited in Istanbul. It contains all one can imagine of equipment and transport machines as well as models of Turkish houses over history. There's also a part of scientific experiments for children to use their heads and hands. You can also enjoy a train ride, a vessel or a submarine tour on weekends (that's Saturdays and Sundays), but there's an age limit for submarine tour ( 7 as I remember). the museums located on both sides of the main street, so don't miss any of part of it.
  • A great big museum with some interactive area. You can buy an extra ticket for a tour at a submarine. You can stay there for a while and if you have kids, all of you will enjoy the visit.
  • Great Museum with fantastic signage and labeling, and highly entertaining videos and games. A huge collection of transportation related items donated by the founder of the museum and the Turkish whose-who-of-society, transport-pundits and Navy (a highligh is a 20 minute tour of a decommissioned American Submarine given to the Turkish Navy and still considered property of the Navy for display by the museum for it's audience). The only short coming is that it lacks English speaking staff so communication was a shore.
  • Well worth a visit. A place the whole family will enjoy. Such an amazing collection of cars, trains, boats, toys, technology and so much more (even a submarine).
  • Many thanks to Koc family. Amazing and lovely point to visit in Istanbul. Absolutely everyone will find something to love there . A submarine used by Turkish Navy and US Navy also waiting there for everyone
