summer 2011 ( from March 2011 on ) new museum operating times for Istanbul

updated on 11th April, 2011 :

This began with the shopping festival of Istanbul called ShoppingFest in March: The museums of highest attraction including Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace ( plus the archaelogical museum ) will stay open until 7 pm , opening at 9 am. For the rest of the museum operating hours you may browse the rest of these pages , through the “older” button at the bottom of this page.

From 18th of March 2011 on, Hagia Sophia , Topkapi Palace, Archaelogical Museum, Turkish and Islamic Art Museum operating hours are between 9 a.m. and 19.00 p.m. I recommend visiting Topkapi Palace from 3 pm until 7 p.m. if you plan to stay 4 hours ( this plan works well beginning from the Harem part ( add-on entrance fee of I presume it was 15 lira = 1$ US ) Topkapi and Hagia Sophia Entrances are both 20 lira each.

18 Mart 2011 tarihinden itibaren Ayasofya Muzesi, Topkapi Sarayi Muzesi, Turk ve Islam Eserleri Muzesi ve Arkeoloji Muzeleri mesai saatleri; 09:00-19:00 olarak yeniden duzenlenmistir.
