    Good collection of artwork. They also have a cafe/restaurant near the sea. Rest if you must, the breeze is fantastic. Customer service is a 2/5, not very friendly.

    One of my favourite modern art museums in town. Recently moved to their temporary center, located in a mesmerising historical Beyoglu apartment in Pera area of Istanbul.

    Daring and exciting exhibits all around. Incredible Turkish modern masters. Makes you think, unlike a very boring, large museum called Tate elsewhere.
