Rahmi Koç Museum

Opened in 1994, the Rahmi Koç Museum is located on the northern shore of the Golden Horn in a former foundry where anchors and anchor chains were made during the reign of Ahmed III (1703-1730).

In the 19th century, this area became an important symbol of the industrialization of the Ottoman Empire. The historic building is said to be built on Byzantine foundations dating from the 12th century. The Koç Museum, situated in the former Jewish Quarter, is therefore a noteworthy example of the preservation of historic buildings through conversion.

A large part of the museum is located in the ground floor. A glass-sided bridge connects it to the main building. Most of the exhibits are from the private collection of businessman and museum founder Rahmi Koç. There are mainly objects from the fields of industry, marine, aviation, engineering, aeronautics and communications. You can explore engines, historical means of transport, scientific instruments, specific communication devices, money printing machines, motorcycles and motorboats, just to name a few. It was not without reason that the Rahmi Koç Museum has won the Culture and Arts Grand Prize in 2001. The museum illustrates the development of the industry in stages.

The nice café of the museum in the open courtyard invites its guests to relax.
