  • "This had very mixed reviews and was unsure about going but on a bad weather day we went and happy we did. It not as big as the London one but still a good size to spend a few hours and for the price it great you can get very close to the stars and have photos can try on wigs and jackets to look like them. It well layed out nice and cool. a good mix of Turkish stars and Hollywood greats also staff are friendly and helpful. "

  • "After my visites in Amsterdam and London I was excited to visit Madame Tussauds Istanbul. But I was disappointed that there were less turkish models than I expected. I hope they will get as soon as possible more models of turkish actors of YEŞILCAM like Turkan Soray, Filiz Akın, Tarik Akan and Kadir Inanir, I think that is a really must. Also get more models of turkish politicans, writers and turkish singers who are famous in the country ?>"
