Istanbul Modern, Istanbul
Take some time to discover local and foreign painters of the 19th and 20th centuries, photographers, and creative videographers at Istanbul Modern.

Istanbul Modern Reviews
Экспозиция очень маленькая, на 4 этажа около 50 экспонатов, из которых реально интересных штук 10, остальное вызывает слабые впечатления. Внизу есть магазин с заоблачными ценами.

At the bottom there is a shop with cloudy prices. I do not advise to waste time. For comparison: By paying the same amount in the Museum of Modern Art of St. Petersburg or, for example, Helsinki, you will get about 6-8 times more pleasant sensations. :)
This museum has about 5 floors and only one room on each floor. There are nothing interesting to see. Boring exhibits. Not recommend. Price is 60TL. more »
There's always something interesting to see at the Istanbul Modern, but the new (or perhaps temporarily new) location doesn't do it justice. The multilevel arrangement detracts from the grand view on the collection, which in my opinion was one of the stunning aspects of the bosphoros-side location. And of course the outside view is gone. Still, an interesting collection and venue for temporary exhibitions.
The museum is fairly small considering its price but there is some very cool stuff here. Quality over quantity. I would definitely recommend it if you like modern art.
