Petit Futé's opinion on MUSEUM OF TURKISH AND ISLAMIC ARTS

Vintage plate 2020

It is the first Turkish museum to fully cover Turkish and Islamic works of art. It is a world reference in the field. It was originally located in the complex of the Süleymaniye Mosque, which is one of Mimar Sinan's most important works. After the announcement of the Republic, it was renamed the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Works and then relocated to the palace of İbrahim Pasha in 1983. This incredible museum is one of the most important samples of 16th century Ottoman civil architecture.
The palace of İbrahim Pasha, which competes in majesty with Topkapi, welcomed many great viziers, even after the death of the great Ibrahim Pasha (1536). He also had many different functions throughout the tribulations of history: barracks, embassies, janissary houses, sewing workshops or even prisons. The museum's magnificent collection has a setting at the height of this beautiful palace. Very nice view from the terrace over the racecourse, where it is possible to have a drink.

The museum's works are organized into seven distinct departments: Carpets; Manuscripts, miniatures and calligraphy; Carved wood; Stone sculptures; Earthenware and glassware; Ironwork and metal arts; and finally, the ethnographic section devoted to the nomadic populations of Anatolia. It has works of choice from all periods and styles of Islamic art, with a collection of more than 40,000 pieces.

magnifique
Très beau musée. Le bâtiment en lui même est déjà somptueux. Les collections exposées sont très instructives, la lecture en est aisée. Le lieu est un havre de fraîcheur et de calme (très appréciable en plein mois d'août), ce qui permet de flâner et d'apprécier toutes les pièces thématiques.

Incontournable au niveau du quartier de sultanahmet, vous ne raterai pas au passage l'hippodrome de constantinople. Musée qui fût à l'époque ottomane le palais du vizir Ibrahim Pasha où se trouvent près de 40000 pièces d'arts islamique toutes intéressantes les unes comme les autres.
