Places to Visit in Haskoy
Rahmi M Koc MuseumThe Rahmi M. Koc Museum (www.rmk-museum.org.tr) has two separate sections that sit on either side of Haskoy Road Caddesi.
The second section is an open-air museum which was once a ship yard (tersane) that dated back to 1861 and where some of the early ferry boats were built. Rahmi Koc purchased this part in 1996 and it opened to the public in 2001. There is also a temporary exhibition hall at the back of the Café du Levant.
Haskoy Jewish CemeteryThe Haskoy Jewish Cemetery dates back to 1582, it was once a flourishing Jewish burial place and today still contains over 20,000 graves that bear Hebrew and Turkish inscriptions. Unfortunately the graveyard is rather neglected and overgrown.
Getting to HaskoyTo get to Hasköy; take the ferry along the Golden Horn to the Hasköy landing point which is by far the most fun way to travel, or from Taksim take Bus No. 38T which will bring you to the museum or use the Metro from Sishane and then take a minibus (dolmuş).
