  • Great hospitality. English speaking. Interesting dolls and collections.
  • The museum card unfortunately does not pass. The student has determined the price to be 10 full 15 pounds. With dolls; Traditions, cultures, people's forms of living are symbolized. Each window has a different story. You can stop by.

  • At the entrance, a lady and a gentleman greet you, and i say hello no matter how much you are told to be welcomed, and the gentleman jumps right in for 20 lira because my friend insists, so they put everything on the money, and thanks to them, they offered you tea, and they offered me something else. The lady asked if my friend would not bother, the lady said if it would n't bother, the lady snapped in a very dull tone in case the customers of this place took their own water, and it's NOT WORTH IT.

  • History with babies was amazing. The whole museum was told and introduced live. A place I'll never forget in my life. Sibel, who made babies and created a museum, and her son are very caring and warm people.
