Pera Museum

Pera Museum is a spot for locals to live Istanbul with the colour of the old Pera  ambiance. Inspite of all the historical places in Istanbul, Pera Museum offers a high quality culture and art services from Turkey and other countries.

"Yıldız Moran"'s photographs were exhibiting at the museum last month. So I thought this will be a very good chance for me to see this lady's productions. I went there, of course, with my two children, and was afraid if they would be bored. However from sightsee of a mom, this place is very friendly for the families and children love since there are modern art collections which inspire their imaginations.

The weather was lovely last week. I thought it will be very good for children to go outside and play under the sun.

A visit to Turkuazoo again:)) Is there anyone left that did not go to this lovely underwater World in Istanbul? I am sure most of you has already seen twice, may be more.
Even so, I wanted to share my sightsee as a mom. This aqua park is one of the best in Turkey. But why? When you visit Istanbul, you will not find a good quality zoo parks like in USA or elsewhere in Europe. Turkuazoo's conditions are very coordinated for the animals natural life. So while touring, you are not bored or tired.  Children are easily learning, entertaining and living the marine life as if in natural surroundings. These all in sum make Turkuazoo very special.
