People Madame Tussauds Istanbul
"I visited the place with my Mom & sister. We’ve been in there for almost 1:30 hours. It was fun, nice , clean, though small. I liked it that it was not only super international celebrities but also very many Turkish celebrities (from history to today’s movie stars).
The only thing I didn’t like much was that upon our entrance the guy said take a picture in this tramva photo booth “it’s for free”. We thought the photo is free but only taking it was for free. So at the end of the museum they were options of 40tl to 140tl to give us that photo :) which we just skipped it and got out.
Also if you are planning to visit Istanbul’s water life (aquarium), you can buy a package ticket for both water life & madame tussauds museums and save 33tl for each person "
"Same as of other places. They have many packages to add other attractions to it. We had only opted for the museum. Uploading few pictures to show the experience. "
