  • Great museum much better than I expected. Not just for science buffs, as I had read, but really comprehensive and interesting displays. Not as overwhelming as some of the other museums. The videos were very informative and I particularly liked the one on weapons of war even though I did not originally think that would interest me.
  • It was an impressive museum with allot of equipment that were creating during that time. In each room you can find items that belong to a certain area like medicine, math, astrology, warfare etc. Also there is a video about 10 minute long that shows you the history and how they were created. You can find information about the equipment on each wall, for some of them there also some videos with them working and others have interact button. You can also use your Museum Istanbul Pass here, there is also a nice park were you can rest
