"Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum" Turkish & Islamic Arts Museum Tip by MalenaN

Turkish & Islamic Arts Museum, Istanbul: 17 reviews and 42 photos

by MalenaN

I liked this museum very much because it exhibits Turkish and Islamic artefacts from different periods and regions. There are wonderful carpets, old woodwork, metalwork and old Korans. There is also an ethnographic section downstairs with ?dolls? dressed in traditional cloths and a yurt (a nomadic tent). Around Turkey I have enjoyed many museums like this, showing artefacts and traditional life in Ottoman Turkey.
