This area holds history about art in ottoman and turkey. Of course as art was forbidden during Ottoman empire (penalty of death) there is not much art objects dated from this period. The few are Coranic verse frames etc. But starting from Ataturk`s time, there...More

Incredible art museum featuring Turkish painters and sculptors....One of the best I've ever visited! Wide range of art, but mostly modern (last century onward). LOVED it! And it was FREE! Right next to Ethnology Museum, both can easily be done in one day. But no...More

The nice museum has an extensive collection of all kinds of art. The museum is next to the Ethnographic Museum and worth visiting as well. The admission to the art museum is free and a nice find.

In a very beautiful building from 1920's, there are very valuable old paintings and statues, And next to this building, there is the Ethographic Museum. Be careful about the traffic if you cross the street next to this museum.

Might be good displays, if they lit them properly. No English signage. Very difficult to find on foot as there are no street signs whatsoever. It's right next door to the Ethno Museum, but you would not know. Very mistrusting staff keep "snooping" on you...More

Can not be compared with its rivals in Europe, but still it is something for the modern Turkey and its art. Worths to stop by if you are in Ulus district.
