Istanbul Modern, Istanbul Reviews

  • It's not bad but the new place is way smaller. It took me 1 hour or less to watch everything and I took my time. If the old place gets fixed they will move back and u will be able to enjoy way more. All in all its a solid museum but it didn't realy touch me.

  • It is worth a visit but this museum displays too many second rate pieces which lower the overall quality. Nice staff. The entrance fee is 40TL (6€). Photography is allowed.

  • They're in their temporary place for 3 years. Small place. İt was incredibly cold inside cause of the air conditioners. Great art though.

  • Wanna spend few hours in a cool and interesting place while hiding from hot Istanbul sun? Thats your choice! Modern art can be controversial, but thats why we love it. Nice staff, and different halls representing different kinds of modern art. Decent gift store as for modern art museum.

  • If you are interested in modern art, the place might seem cool. But if you decide to take a look even though you are not into contemporary stuff that much, you would only waste time. Long story short, the place is not that unique.
