Rahmi M. Koç Museum Istanbul – Collectors time machine

arts&culture
Art & culture

"Rahmi M. Koç Museum" Istanbul has such items as vintage cars, sailboats, old trams, trains, productions units, warplanes and more! I also like its garden.

The museum is owned by Koç family which is one of the top 3 richest families in Turkey. Rahmi M. Koç Museum is the collection of great items such as vintage cars, sailboats, old trams & trains, warplanes, production units, toys and more. Also, there is a M. Kemal Atatürk part in the museum who is the founder of modern Turkish Republic. There are many objects exhibited there that Ataturk wore or used. And so it's a quite big museum, it offers a rich content. It should be noted that it is also quite photogenic place to visit.

I've been to this museum 2 times. I like it so much. Especially in spring and summertime it is a pleasure to take a seat in the garden of the museum because the museum is situated on the shore of the historic Golden Horn.
