  • Whether you're an art lover, history buff, culture vulture or just plain curious, the museums of Istanbul are not to be missed; especially those that reveal the soul of it... Such as the Archeology Museum, the Islamic Arts Museum and the Mosaic Museum.

    Unfortunatly, the arts museums of Istanbul are still not as developed compared to other metropolitan hubs. Arts Museums, whether Modern Arts or classic, still tend to host mostly exhibitions borrowed or lent from famous Museums abroad. Sabanci Museum and Pera Museum are among the best organizations that strive to bring together famous art pieces with art lovers.

    Have a look at cultural and arts museums of Istanbul as you plan your itinerary. Ottoman crafts may bewilder you more than you expect...
