Expert review of Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts
Nicely arranged and rarely crowded, vizier Ibrahim Paşa’s old 16th-century palace hosts a broad selection of beautiful works of art and craft, from massive wall-sized carpets to tiny Korans and Persian miniatures, plus fine examples of ceramics, calligraphy, and woodcarvings. There’s also a slightly cheesy, but interesting, section of dioramas depicting life in a variety of traditional dwellings.
Regular admission is 10 lira.
