Istanbul Modern


Istanbul Modern is a reflection on Istanbul’s current vibrant cultural and artistic scene. It might be a typical concrete block – like most modern art museums – but it’s a genuinely enjoyable place to spend a few hours as it showcases a wide range of artworks by established and up and coming Turkish artists.

Once visitors are done with staring at canvases they can grab a bite to eat at the boutique style restaurant and enjoy the view of the Bosphorus from its terrace. The museum shop is also worth a detour if one wishes to purchase original designer items.
