Yet another proof that modernity fits in perfectly well into this ancient city.
Istanbul Museum of Modern Arts. An active and hip city museum with a nice sea side restaurant and a bar. May spend your whole day.
The outside is unusual and the inside attractive: the first private modern museum of art in Istanbul is located in Warehouse No. 4 of the old port. The museum, which was opened in late 2004, was donated by the pharmaceutical company Eczacıbaşı and houses outstanding examples of contemporary Turkish painting and photography on 8,600 square feet of space. A library and a large café at the dock round out the museum.
