Housed in the striking Azaryan Mansion on the banks of the Bosphorus, the Sadberk Hanim Museum is home to the collection of Sadberk Koç, wife of prominent entrepreneur and philanthropist Vehbi Koç. The museum was established in 1980, becoming the first private collection to open to the public in Turkey. Passionate about embroidery and other crafts, Sadberk Koç collected traditional textiles, costumes, and ceramics from all over the world. The collection was later augmented by that of Hüseyin Kocabaş, one of Turkey’s leading collectors, and today comprises over 20,000 pieces – with 3,000 on display – ranging from Ancient Anatolian artefacts dating to the 6th millennium BC to exquisite examples of 18th-century Chinese porcelain. Originally the Koç family’s summer house, the Azaryan Mansion was restored and converted into a museum by Sedat Hakki Eldem. The neighbouring mansion was purchased in 1983 and restored by Architect Ibrahim Yalçin, a project which won the Europa Nostra Award for its exemplary museum layout.
