Santral Istanbul, Istanbul Overview

An energy museum the complex also has concert halls, an amphitheater, and a public library, making it an educational, cultural, and art hub. There are also interactive exhibits and games on both the floors of the energy museum.

Santral means power station in Turkish. And the Silahtaraga Power Station located here was the first power plant that was built during the Ottoman Empire. However, it supplied electric power to the city, until 1983. Today the Modern art museum that is constructed on the foundations of the two old power plants displays types of art, including digital, photographs, installations, and more. Yet, the old power station remains an alluring attraction for visitors, who are impressed with the machinery and magnitude of the plant. One can also take a stroll in the university campus or enjoy some refreshments at the cafes within the complex.
