Maritime Museum

Housing the largest collection of naval artifacts in Turkey, the Maritime Museum commemorates both the Ottoman and Republican legacy at sea. Established in 1897, the museum was moved to its current waterfront location in Beşiktaş in the 1960s. A few minutes walk from Dolmabahçe Palace, the museum’s closer neighbor is the mausoleum of Barbaros Hızır Hayrettin Paşa, a celebrated Ottoman admiral. The Deniz Müzesi (Naval Museum) has opened its doors to the public once more, after being closed for renovation. There is an impressive collection of Imperial Caiques, ornately gilded with eagle figureheads striking a pose at the front of the boats. They have luxury kiosks where the Sultans or their harems would have sat to travel in ultimate style. Aside from the boats, there are Sultans’ tuğras, painted chest covers Ottoman wood carvings, stamps and seals.
