  • We had not previously heard of this place, it is part of the university, and the exhibition is in an old cistern in the basement (very much cleaned up, but interesting) The exhibits were beautifully.....  more »

  • Small museum inside Kadir Has University, Cibali Campus.
  • pretty cool!
  • From Cibali tobacco Factory, Kadir Has Has become a beautiful educational institution by donating to the university. The building is full of history. You see the old history as a tobacco factory on the ground floor. From the tobacco wrapping machine to the stacking. Old cigarette packs etc. are downstairs; The ruins of the Ottoman period and the cistern of the Byzantine frozen water were so carefully restored that they received the European Nostra Award. The history of Anatolia, from antiquity to Seljukian, is exhibited with the name "Heritage of the land" from the earthenware to the pots and bottles to the altar. The glass floor ceiling and the old ruins are also the same. It's a place where I don't think to photograph. If you are fond of seeing the old, you should definitely see the archaeology attracts you. I think they are very lucky to have the history of the university. The Golden Horn is just around the corner and it's a beauty. If it's not a museum alone and it's in the university, it's not a big place, but turn your direction and go. (Impressions from the September 2018 trip.)

  • During the post-industrial spatial transformation process, the Golden Horn has been invested strongly in making it an urban festival and celebration venue in which museums and cultural centres are lined up. These investments are made using building heritage (factories, shipyards, ship slides, power plants, slaughterhouses, etc.) located on the north side of the Golden Horn. Starting from The North Golden Horn Istanbul Modern, the Shipyard-i Amire, Aynalikavak Pavilion, Koç Museum, Sütlüce Cultural Center, Miniature, Guntaraga Museum Area is in the process of becoming a permanent cultural shore. However, it is not possible to talk about a similar activity intensity on the North coast on the South Estuary, especially in the area between Eminonu Eyup, where the accumulation of port structures has been almost completely wiped out. Although there are important shooting points such as Fener-Balat and Tahtakale behind the coast, it is difficult to say that there are areas on the coast that appeal to the whole city except Feshane-i Amire, Library of Women's Works, Zindan Khan and Baba Jafar Dungeon. The Golden Horn is being turned into a "museum port" and the South Side needs to be balanced with a similar activity intensity. The "Rezan Has Golden Horn Cultures Museum" which will be part of Kadir Has University is a very important initiative in this context and will fill a major gap within such a strategic geographical framework. It is known that kadir Has University building, which represents the rich historical structure of Istanbul, consists of four layers. At the bottom, the beginning was 11. The Byzantine cistern, which dates back to the 17th century, was built on it in the 17th century. There is a remnant of an Ottoman bath that dates back to the 16th century. On this basis is the Cibali Tobacco Factory, built in the 1880s. In 2003, Kadir Has University's building, which embraced a 1400-year-old history, was awarded the best preserved historical building within the Nostra European Cultural Heritage framework of the European Union. Rezan Has is a 11th-century museum of Golden Horn Cultures. This cistern, which dates back to the 16th century, was established with the aim of meeting the water needs of the region. This cistern, which has completeByzantine architecture, is a cistern. It consists of 24 domes and 48 columns. It is known that it was discovered in 1944 by excavations by the Archaeological Museum. It is estimated that the employees of the factory used it as a refuge before the Republican period, i.e. during the war periods. Cistern also witnessed the events of the period by serving as a warehouse where food was stored. After the conquest of Istanbul, the 17th century was a time of war. This cistern, which was used as a bath house during the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century, also witnessed this period. The side of the cistern used as a bath was found as a result of the excavations. Visitor Days and Hours: Daily can be visited between 09:00 and 18:00. Visitor Fees: Full: £3.00 Student: £1.00

  • First of all, very carefully done, befitting the name of kadir has, congratulations. In the 1933s we were able to produce cigars, those stylish and nobility cigar boxes, nostalgic cigarette packets, the 8500-year-old lady kibele statuette downstairs and the magnificently preserved corridors... Of course it's worth seeing. "There's not much to do," what did you expect, how shameful, there are dozens of 5,000-year-old work, I'm proud🧡💚👌✔️
