Military Museum, Istanbul Reviews - Write a Review

  • This museum is AWESOME. Staff is very nice, facilities are new and well maintained. But most importantly, the museum has it all in terms of history and exhibits. You can an excellent overview of the history of the Turkish people, from their origins in Central Asia through their arrival in Anatolia. Besides that, the museum is huge, with numerous excellent displays and well documented (almost all with English descriptions available) artifacts and historical events.

  • Endless museum with billions of weapons. Very large museum and I recommend. Why 4*? - there was too much of the same weapons.

  • Great museum about Turkish history, very friendly staff and overall is the museum very well maintained with a huge collection of weapons and other military equipment. 7,50 TL is absolutely worth it

  • Sample of how a museum needs to be. Big collection of all types of history, prices are ok, staff is good.

  • The museum features a great variety of weaponry and military equipment. The armor and weapons are almost perfectly preserved. Equipment from various nations are displayed, and the images and models offer valuable historical insight.
