The museum is located in central Beyoglu, but in a street where you normally never pass. When I've visited the place there was the exihibition of "Burhan Doğançay as Photographer" which was quite impressive. The staff was friendly and guided me through floors.

If you are interested with modern art you must see this museum (gallery). I am visiting this place when i find any time to refresh my sprit. I even had a chance to meet with Mr Dogancay once when he was alive.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
