Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum

The Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum is located in Istanbul’s Sultanahmet Square, formerly the site of the ancient Hippodrome. Once the palace of Damad Ibrahim Pasha, the first grand vizier to Suleyman the Magnificent, the building housing the museum was built by the imperial architect Sinan in 1524.

The museum is home to a variety of Ottoman and Seljuk treasures, dating from the 8th and 9th centuries through the 19th century. Exhibits include a wide array of religious art, calligraphy, peace treaties and examples of the sultan’s official seal, as well as carved wood, stone, porcelain and glass. It also showcases one of the best collections of antique carpets in the world, including examples from Caucasia and Iran. Turkish ethnographic exhibits recreate rooms or dwellings from different periods of Turkish history and feature a full-size and fully-furnished nomads’ tent and an example of a 19th century Ottoman parlor
