Museum Of Innocence, Istanbul Reviews
THIS IS THE BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE TIME! not kidding, this is extraordinary. I am speechless! As a writer and a poet, this has felt surreal. Make sure you take the audio guide, and be prepared to spend at least two hours there. Also read the book! It's a must do while in Istanbul. You can't skip that tour. It's something else.
Since most info can already be found at the website of the museum I'll just mention quick tips. One, if you bring the book which the museum takes its name from, you can get it stamped and use it for free entry. Two, the space within the museum is very narrow so if you expect to take your time enjoying each chapter being exhibited, don't. Three, the floors are labeled according to the chapters they have artifacts from. A scavenger hunt can be fun but easy. Four, some chapter displays have drawers underneath. Look there to find memoirs and notes left by the other visitors of the museum (it's mostly cheesy Turkish love notes but then again, the entire museum is one big cheesy love note). Audio guiding and English translations of the quotes and labels are available. Have fun!
I enjoyed visiting this cozy museum. The museum is quite different from most of the other museums and presents the life of regular people in Istanbul. Audio quide was nice. When visiting the museum, I regretted I hadn't read the book before hand as I think that would have made an experience even more interesting.
Had a really nice time here, although I haven't read the book. Great atmosphere and lots of interesting items. Full tour with audio guide takes about hour and a half, but there is also a short tour (half hour). I took the short one and it was OK, but I definitely recommend taking the full one if you have time. The museum is created by Orhan Pamuk. The novel and the museum were being made simultaneously. Besides it's connection with the novel, the museum can be seen as a museum of "Istanbul life in the second half of the 20th century".
Beautiful museum. It's extra special if you've read the book, but if you haven't the audio guide fills the gaps so you still enjoy. Nice bookshop with Pamuk titles and relevant other books/posters.
