Istanbul Rahmi Koc Industry Museum

The Rahmi M Koç Museum is the first major museum in Turkey dedicated to the history of Transport, Industry and Communications. Housed in magnificent buildings – themselves prime examples of industrial archaeology – on the shore of the historic Golden Horn, in the suburb of Haskoy, the collection contains thousands of items from gramophone needles to full size ships and aircraft. The museum was an Ottoman-period building, formerly called Lengerhane, for iron and steel works.

The location is unrivalled – romantic, historic, convenient to both the Old City and the new. And the appeal is universal: objects that affect our daily lives, created by talented engineers and craftsmen, encapsulating man’s ingenuity and hard work yet at the same time exhibiting great beauty.
