  • As the other guides wrote before me, the museum is definitely worth visiting. If you're with the kids, it's a place to thoroughly study. It's covering the fields of transport on land/sea/air, communications and some manufacturing. I personally loved the collection of cars, commercial and industrial vehicles. The kids loved the trains and trams. Also there's a toy collection. There is also a submarine but it's not for children under 7 yo. Staff is kid friendly as they have many children in organised groups and workshops in Turkish.
  • Kind of charming place with lots of model boats, old cars, a submarine, etc. Packed with Turkish school children when we were there on a weekday. Some of the attractions only operate on the weekend do keep that in mind. Also don't forget to get timed tickets for the submarine when you buy your entrance tickets. They don't really explain that.
  • This place is a real treat. See engineering marvels from times past and a nice collection of cars, carriages, bicycles and machines. Not forgetting boats. Children will love the place. There is a good collection of Doll's house. and a quaint tea shop if your grandma is tired!
  • Outstanding! :) One of the best in whole Turkey. Submarine tour, Golden Horn tour and planetarium are not included into the main tour cost. Visit the museum's site to find all the information you need.
  • 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, since, arts, cars and trains all together in an amazing gallery. Very impressive!
