What people are saying:

I include the Pera Museum in my guide on the Istanbul creative industry because it is one of the most innovative cultural organizations in the city. The modern cinema downstairs runs excellent film festivals and lectures focusing on contemporary themes, and the temporary exhibitions are great examples of modern curatorial work. The collection mostly focuses on 19th century art from the viewpoint of Western diplomats, and showcases the artistic school of orientalism. There is also a great café and bookstore on the ground floor.

Additional Information

Introduction

Istanbul has a sight that people must view when they are visiting this ancient city. The Pera Museum, endowed by the industrialist Rahmi Koc and his family, is a treasure trove of the wealthy family's inventory of culturally significant Tukish works. It accomplishes that task well, featuring handwritten Ottoman-era books, Byzantine works, and a Republican era book collection. The crown jewel of the collection is the $3.5 million painting, "Turtle Trainer," by artist Osman Hamdi Bey, who has five other pieces on display at this Turkish museum.
