If you are planning to spend more days without a guide in Istanbul, it is wise investing in a Museum Pass.

Please let us know if you’re interested and we’ll help you get one. Once you purchase the pass then you can visit the top 10 Museums in Istanbul with a huge discount.

One other advantage is that it will save you from waiting in long lines. Please remember to have your passports with you as you head to the ticket office. The best place to buy Istanbul Museum Pass is the Museum of Islamic and Turkish Art because nobody goes there so it is always empty!

Children under 9 do not need to buy tickets at museums in Istanbul. Please carry a form of ID that shows age and date of birth.

Istanbul Museum Pass is valid for 5 days and it costs 325TL.  Please note you can only use the Pass once in every museum!
