What people are saying:

I love love the concept of this museum! To me it revolutionizes the traditional concept of a museum and puts someone's personal life and collection at public display. Following the awesome book of Orhan Pamuk, this house has been turned into a museum upon the request of its owner Kemal. He's quite a unique character. I advise you to read the book before you take a trip to this museum. You will see how a real life story has been turned into a book, then into a museum. I was able to connect to every piece of this museum which gathers many antique collections, souvenirs and quirky things Kemal used to collect out of sheer love. This is personal history coming to life! Sheer Joy!

    Imaginative space

    This is a small museum with a focus that is both very narrow and quite universal. If you haven't read the book I'm not sure you would appreciate the museum. I did like it, but I also think I liked t...
