Rahmi Koç Museums received TripAdvisor Award

  • Published by Vedat
Turkey’s first museum dedicated to the history of transport, industry and communications; Rahmi M. Koç Museum, and the first and only industrial museum in Ankara; Çengelhan Rahmi M. Koç Museum received TripAdvisor’s 2013 Travellers Choice Award.

Rahmi M. Koç, member of the wealthiest dynasty in Turkey and Honorary Chairman of the Koç Holding, founded the museum in 1991, which was opened on December 13, 1994. The museum is located in the suburb of Hasköy on the north shore of the Golden Horn. It is open to public every day except Monday. Travellers can enjoy a glimpse of the thousands of wonderful objects in the collection including Submarine 'TCG Uluçalireis', M/V Fenerbahçe Ship, Hasköy-Sütlüce Railway, 1917 Albion X-Ray Ambulance, 1961 Amphicar, Olive Oil Factory, and steam engine Tugboat "Liman II" that visitors can still sail in the Golden Horn during the summer seasons.

On the other hand, housed in a magnificent building before the entrance to the Ankara Citadel, the collection of Çengelhan Rahmi M. Koç Museum contains hundreds of items from miniatures to full size boats and vehicles. The location is unrivalled – romantic, historic, convenient. 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.
