If you are a fan of modern art and interested in visiting museums, you should definitely add Istanbul Modern Art Museum to your list. Istanbul Modern opened in 2004 and is Turkey’s first modern art museum opened by a private enterprise.
The museum has permanent and and temporary exhibition halls, a photo gallery and educational and social programs. I love following their schedule and do visit frequently. The atmosphere of the museum is so spacious. The “Magnum – Contact Sheets” exhibition was one of my favorite. There were a lot of impressive historical photos from the most famous photographers.
The permanent exhibitions are at the entrance floor of the museum. There are also temporary exhibitions on the ground floor. One more thing I need to tell you is that the inside view of the museum cafe-restaurant is legendary. It is absolutely necessary to take a break while visiting the museum and have a coffee or a lunch with that view.
