The museum is a recent addition to the area, opening to the public in the spring of 2012 and is based on a novel published in 2008 by Orhan Pamuk, a famous Turkish writer, who envisaged the novel and museum at the same time.  The novel is about love and describes life in Istanbul between 1950 and 2000 and is centred on two families – one rich, the other lower middle class.  The museum’s exhibits come from the novel as in what the characters used, wore, heard, saw, collected and dreamed of, all of which have been carefully arranged in boxes and display cabinets. {reklam,300,250,1} You do not have to read the book to enjoy the museum, and you do not have to visit the museum to enjoy the book, but if you have read the novel it will give a better grasp of the different connotations of the museum, and those who have been to the museum will discover many nuances they had missed when reading the book.
