Rahmi M. Koc Museum reviews
Wonderful museum in a good location. Easy to get to with public transportation. The collections of Mr Kroc are so well displayed.

I was recommended to visit here by a local. Well, that was a great recommendation. The museum is kind of a "collection of all the things which appeal to men and boys" I guess, but I'm sure girls..... more

As we love old and classic cars this was the best stop in Istanbul. We spent over three hours and had a wonderful experience.

One of the most amazing places I have ever been! There is something interesting for literally everyone who visits. The models and restoration works on old cars, trucks, trains and boats are incredible! You also see thousands of science, tech, industry and everyday items that you can not see anywhere outside of the museum. Oh and they have set up small shops with all the items in them that would have been present in the last century! Incredible attention to detail. Plan the whole day there! We went in the early afternoon, stopped only for a short coffee break and still could not see the whole museum, so we will definitely visit again. It's mindblowing!
Awesome place, we enjoyed it. You have a great lot to visit, starting with vintage cars and bikes, trams, some railway cars, ships and planes. It's a nice place to see some experiments for kids to learn some physics, and for you to see how engines and cars work. The ticket price is decent, and inside you can find clean restrooms. Our only regret is that we didn't had that much time to finish the whole tour and we skipped the airplane part, maybe next time :). If you plan to visit it fully and don't want to hurry, you should reserve 3 to 4 hours.
Ticket for students cost 20TL. Overall, Brilliant museum to visit with wonderful and succinct depiction of history and progression in cars, ships and bicycles. There's an inbuilt coffee place to rest before continuing to explore the museum. You can also have coffee or cay by the sea inside a ship put on display. Friendly for children too as there are alot of activities to engage the children also.
Even though me and my family have been to Istanbul so many times, we have never been to this museum before and it is such a shame! This museum would be both interesting to kids and adults! Such an amazing idea to create such a museum with so many different and interesting objects (starting from toys to the airplanes, trains, vehicles, etc.) from all over the world. This is a truly heritage. And the atmosphere of the place is just fascinating! And this place is just an initiative of one person (Rahmi Koc) who had a passion, desire and money (of course) to make his dream come true. It is amazing that wealthy and educated people do contribute to their country and the whole world in such a remarkable way!
This place is amazing and worth visiting. Great collection of antique cars, motorcycles, and boats. It’s also a useful place for kids to learn about how different engines work. Ticket prices for foreigners are more expensive. There is also a small cafe inside the museum. You need at least 2 hours for visiting the whole place.
