The Rahmi M Koç Museum is the first major museum in Turkey dedicated
to the history of Transport, Industry and Communications. Housed
in magnificent buildings - themselves prime examples of industrial
archaeology - on the shore of the historic Golden Horn, the collection
contains thousands of items from gramophone needles to full size
ships and aircraft.
The location is unrivalled - romantic, historic,
convenient to both the Old City and the new. And the appeal is universal:
objects that affect our daily lives, created by talented engineers
and craftsmen, encapsulating man's ingenuity and hard work yet at
the same time exhibiting great beauty.
Our museum educates, informs, and entertains tens
of thousands of adults and children each year. Please do explore
our website now for a taste of what we have on show
still, come and visit us soon!

Kids love our Hands-On gallery. Where else can you climb all over a vintage car, sit in the cockpit of a real plane and try the controls, or try real-life scientific experiments? And if that is not enough, come at the weekend and join some of our special activities (which now include the chance of a free train ride on a real railway along the shores of the Golden Horn), or let our resident science teacher explain basic scientific principles using our many experimental models
When visiting, don't forget to take
a break at the Museum Tearoom, Museum Shop, Barbarossa Pub,
or Halat Restaurant. Decorated in the style of the Museum, and showing
many items from our collection, they are open during normal opening
hours, plus Halat and Barbarossa are open 'till late every night
except Monday. Suggestion: come late in the afternoon on a Saturday
or Sunday, and then when the Museum closes at 7 o'clock, drop into
Barbarossa Pub for a drink before dinner on the shores of the Golden
Horn at Halat Restaurant
