We visited here on our second trip to Istanbul, don't think it is worthy of a visit on your first time as many other more important places, but well worth it if you have spare time,
There is a boat that goes from kabatas, (just past petrol station), that takes you along the golden horn for 15lira return which covers a cruise at same time.
Inside miniaturk there is a wide range of mini buildings covering all of Turkey and a talking information point at each, you get given a card with barcode for your language.
Also for an extra 12lira there is a helicopter simulator ride over Istanbul which turned out to be better than I expected.
A kids play area and maze also inside if you have kiddies in tow.
A cafe and gift shop inside as expected.
Many buses run outside as well if you prefer that rather than boat although if 4 of you a taxi same cost.
