  Serving coffee
by MalenaN

In a restored Ottoman house in Kaleici is the Suna and Inan Kirac Kaleici Museum. On the upper floor the rooms has an ethnographic exhibition, showing life in the second half of the 19th century. Important events shown are the serving of coffee, the bride?s henna night and shaving of the bridegroom.
Across the courtyard is a restored Orthodox church. Here there is an exhibition of ceramics.
There is also a bookstore in the museum.
Entrance fee is 1 000 000 TL (July 2004).

When I was there I was the only visitor. It was in the morning so I hope more people find their way there later during the day. It is centrally located in Kaleici.
