Panorama 1453 History Museum Tours

Panorama 1453 History Museum
Step back in time and immerse yourself in the fall of Constantinople at the Panorama 1453 History Museum in Istanbul. Using 360-degree panorama paintings, 3D objects, and sound effects, the museum simulates significant historical events that occurred during the Ottoman empire. There’s even a helicopter simulation that transports you through ancient Turkey.
 
The Basics
The museum also features miniature works that highlight the history of Istanbul and a 25,295-square-foot (2,350-square-meter) painting that depicts around 10,000 individual figures—replica cannons and battle sounds further enhance the experience.  Admission to the museum is included in some city sightseeing passes. The museum is best combined with an Istanbul sightseeing tour, which typically covers the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapi Palace.
