“Definitely a must for lovers of Modern Art”
Reviewed 20 November 2011

Many modern works by Turkish artists in the permanent display and several installations and video presentations. The library ceiling is definitely impressive (covered with books hanging from fishline) and the view of the Bosphorus from the outdoor deck is amazing.

“Not my favorite”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

The building itself it pretty cool, but the collection is below average. The cafe looks like a great place to meet up with friends, family or colleagues. All in all, not the strongest art collection.
