  • A must. Easily overlooked on the to do list of Bursa, but a short hike from Heykel (or take a cab) will give you a glimpse into the history of carriots and cars. Do it. In the same area there is another gem, a museum for all kind of scales, including all Ottoman scales. 5/5.
  • A great storyline of the development over the years in the automobile industry in Turkey, this place is a must to go for car and history lovers.
