Istanbul Military Museum

Harbiye, 34367 Şişli/İstanbul, Türkiye

Housed in the building of the former Military Academy, the Military Museum originally consisted of weapons that were inherited from the Ottoman armory. Collections were expanded over time, and thanks to donations and new acquisitions, the Museum now includes military artifacts from as far back as the 13th century to present day. Since 2007, sections of the museums have been devoted to Turkish Army displays, the Seljuk period, the Ottoman Empire, the conquest of Istanbul and the Battle of Gallipoli. These displays include dioramas, maps, sculptures and oil paintings.
