#6 of 99 in Museums in Istanbul
Take some time to discover local and foreign painters of the 19th and 20th centuries, photographers, and creative videographers at Istanbul Modern. As Turkey's first modern art museum, its permanent collection strongly features contemporary art by Turkish painters. Art by non-Turkish painters and videographers is also displayed but is not as prominent. The museum has several temporary exhibits and hosts international art events throughout the year. Check the website for updated information on current exhibits and events. Plan a trip to Istanbul easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Great place to visit, expensive, but has lots of fun for all ages.. Kids really enjoyed it. It is a full day activity. The jungle land is very boring and wast of many and time. The mall attached to it is big and well organized with a good food court.
  • Quite a small museum considering the high price for a ticket. Can easily see it all in an hour. If prioritizing art in Istanbul and only have a little bit of time I would recommend the National Painting Palace Museum over this.
