  • Without a doubt, the best museum I've been to. If you're into technology and the history of cars, boats, planes and trains, this is a must see. Near endless collection all in excellent condition.

  • WORTH THE WALK. My wife said "it's a nice walk [from our hotel]. 2 hours later we arrive. A really eclectic collection of transport related items; some gems too. It's massive and you could easily spend the day there. Trains, cars, bikes, boats, motorbikes and even a submarine; they have everything. It was also amusing to see that some cats had made it there home (we love the Istanbul cats). See my other review for the restaurant - well worth a visit.
  • ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Tickets cost us TL360 for 2 adults and 2 kids (tourist rate). We spent 4 hours there which felt like 1 hour. The displays are amazing, informative and varied! It was a shame that a few sections were available to see but we'll definitely be going back in future trips. The cafe was beautifully located on the water and the food was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this, especially on a cooler day as it was a hot July day when we went.
