I was not a huge fan of Pamuk's book: after initially relishing the details of Istanbul at another time I became a little frustrated with Kemal's obsession. However, when I discovered that the museum was a short distance from my accommodation it seemed foolish not to make the effort to visit. I'm so glad I did. The museum is a delight, and the way it is constructed is fascinating. I think anyone interested in the city of Istanbul, and particularly in its recent past, would find the museum of interest. I did, however, think the entrance fee at 25TL was a little excessive - but I guess that's the cost of constructing a private museum. I wouldn't cross town to visit the museum, but if you're in Beyoglu and enjoy exploring the back streets and learning more about the history of the city then I think you'll enjoy this museum.
