From 15th of April 2015 until 26th of October 2015 the museums & sights of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture in Turkey will operate under "summer hours", meaning that they'l stay open until later. The opening time is always 09:00, but the closure time during this period will be 18:30/18:45 depending from museum (Note: end of ticket sales at 18:00).

Another good news is that for the first time in Turkey all museums of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture which are normally closed on Mondays will remain OPEN during this period!! For example in Istanbul these museums will be open on Mondays: Archaeological museum, Hagia Sophia, Great palace mosaics museum, Turkish and Islamic Arts museum (Ibrahim Pasha palace), Fethiye/Pammakaristos museum, Yildiz museum, museum of Science and Technology. Also Kariye museum (St. Saviour in Chora) will remain open on Wednesdays (its normal closure day). Unfortunately Topkapi palace is not on this list therefore it will remain closed on Tuesdays (its closure day).
