Sakıp Sabancı Museum
Sakıp Sabancı Museum is set in a historical mansion. The mansion was purchased by Turkish industrialist Hacı Ömer Sabancı in 1950 to serve as his residence.
Due to the horse statues installed there by him, the mansion was called ‘Horse Mansion’, ‘Atlı Köşk’ in Turkish.
Following the death of Hacı Ömer Sabancı in 1966, Atlı Köşk began to be used permanently as a home by Sakıp Sabancı, the eldest of the family who kept his rich collection of calligraphy and paintings in the mansion.
In 1998 the mansion was allocated to Sabancı University to be transformed into a museum.
The museum has a rich permanent collection with Ottoman calligraphy works and paintings and temporary exhibitions.
