February in Istanbul with kids 8 &11 - things to do ?

We are travelling to Istanbul in February with kids. We are staying near blue mosque. We have been to Istanbul before so have done the usual tourist sights and boat trips.

So any ideas for something different to do with the kids ?

I have heard about miniiturk - will that be open if February ?

Any other ideas ?

Thanks

Hi Hilary,

I would suggest you look at this thread called "Entertaining Children" from the FAQ's - lots of good suggestions there!

Hilary, pick a sunny day to take the kids to a Bosphorus cruise (different than the one you have done before). Visit the Asian side (Kadikoy): have a look: "tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293974-i368-k1844…". The kids will love the fish market at Kadikoy. On a sunny day again, take them to the Princes Islands. Forum Istanbul Mall has a nice Turquazoo Aquarium, Ice rink, Jurassic Park, Fun Lab abd many other activities: "http://www.forumistanbul.com.tr/eglence/". Rahmi Koc Museum at Haskoy on the Golden Horn is a must see for kids (and adults too). Take the Golden Horn ferry from Eminonu to Haskoy for the museum.

good luck,
