Discover Istanbul Museum of Modern Art Turkey

In 2004, Istanbul opened its first modern art museum, nicknamed the Istanbul Modern in reference to its London counterpart, the Tate Modern. The museum lies on the shores of the Bosphore in an ancient warehouse. A library, a space for temporary exhibitions, a photography hall, and a video hall cover an area of 86,111 sq ft. The exhibited artists are Turkish only, but the collections will eventually become international. Open everyday except Mondays, from 10:00am to 6.00pm, and on Thursdays till 8.00pm.
