The Rezan Has Museum (Rezan Has Müzesi) is located in a building that used to be the Cibali Tobacco Processing and Cigarette Factory, which has now been converted to Kadir Has University.
The main attractions of the museum are a Byzantine cistern called the Karanlik Cesme (Dark Fountain), and the ruins of an Ottoman-era hamam (Turkish bath), both of which constitute most of the museum.
The permanent exhibition here consists of artifacts dating from the Neolithic to the Selcuk periods.
Temporary exhibitions of high quality art and historical artifacts constantly come and go, keeping the focus fresh and allowing for a wide range of interesting collections. Past exhibitions have included works of painting, ceramics, jewelry, and photography.
On the walls of the museum are old black and white photographs which show the Cibali tobacco factory as it was in its heyday.
