The location on the Bosphorous is not to be missed; great cafe overlooking the water and very, very interesting exhibits. I especially liked the self-portrait section and the photography.

Very interesting and worth a visit. I'm not much of a fan of contemporary art but it was very interesting. The installation of floating books in the lower floor was fantastic!

You could skip this if you mainly want to see mosques and Greek antiquities, but if you want a glimpse into modern Turkish cultural life this is a must.

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
