Opened in 2011, (Saray Koleksiyonları Müzesi) the museum is home to more than 40,000 items from Ottoman palaces that reveal the daily lives of the later sultans and their families. Drawn from more contemporary palaces, such as Dolmabahce and Beylerbeyi, the artifacts include kitchenware, carpets, hearth tools, and more. Only displaying items from the 19th century on, the museum is a quotidian window on the last years on the Empire. Located near the Besiktas pier, the museum is next to the Dolmabahce Palace complex.
