  • Very small collection - not worth 95 lira. You can see it all in 30 minutes. Woman at the ticket counter was rude.

  • I like this museum but one floor was closed when we were there. The quality and the choice of artwork is perfect and gives a nice perspective of the birth of modern art in Turkey. This building is a temporary one waiting the real big museum opens its door in Galataport area in a few weeks. I think every visitor in Istanbul and also the local art lovers should definitely quit this museum. The price is quite high for non Turkish - yes they discriminate the tourists - for the low number of art work you can currently see.
  • Great place to see the modern Turkish art, which actually looks promising. The place itself is very modern, cool and responds to what it it is for. The shop inside can offer you an interesting stiff too. People are very friendly.
