The miniature museum is called Miniaturk and was built on the shores of the historic Golden Horn district of Istanbul, with quality models, infrastructure and landscaping, Miniaturk is joining the family of miniature parks in the world.
Without neglecting or excluding any of the historical and cultural values of Turkey, Miniaturk embraces all. While underlying the idea that this geographic part of the world is the cradle of many prominent civilizations, it also proves that diversity means richness.
In brief, there is room in Miniaturk for different cultures in addition to Turkish culture. By being the "showcase" for the distinguished examples of the historical and cultural heritage of this geography, Miniaturk also declares to be the "heir" to this heritage.
