Highlights of the Exhibition

From Istanbul’s Topkapi Palace Museum to Japan: about 170 works to showcase the heritage of the Ottoman Empire!

Tulips, the flowers the Turks love above all, garnish decorative and craft objects, tableware, weapons and books. Through these works, this exhibition illustrates the splendor of Turkey’s long history and cultural diversity.

The exhibition recreates spaces from the Topkapi Palace, including the library, a prayer room, the harem, and a courtyard where tulips gloriously bloomed, allowing visitors to appreciate the treasures that the sultans loved in an almost identical atmosphere.

With this exhibition is possible to see that the peoples of Japan and Turkey, the eastern and western edges of Asia, share similar tastes.
