Istanbul Toy Museum

The Istanbul Toy Museum has been founded through the efforts of Turkish poet Sunay Akin and his philosophy teacher wife, Belgin Akin. Antiquary Sunay Akin gathered dozens of toys from 40 countries in 20 years, and the TOYCO-2012 Istanbul (European Toy and Children's Museums Association) meeting was held in Turkey for the first time. The museum has been designed for three generations; grandparents father-mum and children, thus all of them can visit and have fun at the same time. Kinds of events in which children can join are being held all throughout the year, such as theater, music, and painting. The museum is the pioneer of the museums in Antalya, Ataşehir, and Gaziantep under the consultancy and curation of Sunay Akin.
