Children had a great time as they saw how the machines are working, how olive oil is pressed, printed their own coins, had the chance to see old fashioned cars, ferries, tramcars, airplanes... We, adults, saw the old fashioned toy store, pharmacy and clock repair store :))
What about the starving little bodies?
After walking all the exhibition area children were really starving. We looked at the menus of the cafe and restaurant. Ooops! We couldn't find a suitable menu for children. At last, by asking people, we found this wonderful life saver old fashioned restaurant beside the museum.
This is a very good and clean place to eat. The meals are delicious. The prices are very fair. They serve the Turkish homemade meal cuisine. So yummmmy...
