Visit to the Rahmi Koch Museum
Day 97, 3. August 2023
Rahmi Koch is the man in the portrait
We have a shared interest in nautical excavations
A day well spent
We were invited to the Rahmi Koch Museum on Wednesday, and a minibus came to the harbour on Thursday morning to take us there.
The Rahmi Koch Technical Museum was founded in 1994 and consists of many large collections of many kinds. Old cars, steam engines, aeroplanes, model railway scenario, toys, ships, ships in a bottle and even more. We were even invited to come inside the restaurant wagon presented to the Sultan by Kaiser Wilhelm in 1917.
After the visit to the museum, we went to the excavation site where Professor Ufuk and his staff are working to find old ships and other historical material. And in the evening, most of us visited Nardis Jazz Club to enjoy a concert.
