72TL per person. That’s about £9.00 per person. We have visited many modern art galleries in many cities in many countries. Wouldn’t recommended this one. more »
Great place to visit, expensive, but has lots of fun for all ages.. Kids really enjoyed it. It is a full day activity. The jungle land is very boring and wast of many and time. The mall attached to it is big and well organized with a good food court.
Quite a small museum considering the high price for a ticket. Can easily see it all in an hour. If prioritizing art in Istanbul and only have a little bit of time I would recommend the National Painting Palace Museum over this.
