From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Panorama 1453 Historical Museum is a historical museum in Istanbul that was opened on 31 January 2009. The museum is a panorama painting about the conquest of Constantinople. Here the visitor will witness a scene of the Fall of Constantinople, in particularly the moment the Ottoman troops broke the Byzantine defences of the city. After the fall, the Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II, gained the title of Fatih (conqueror). The painting surrounding measures 38 meters in diameter and covers an area of 2,350 square meters.

I visited on a day in the weekend, with huge crowds parading up to the platform from where you can see the panorama, take pictures of front of it, or take pictures of the panorama (and then later stitch them into another panorama, as I did with some). It is definitely impressive, the museum element is almost absent, unless you take the time to read all the information on boards. I didn't, but liked the atmosphere. The Military Museum elsewhere in town used to have a panorama on the same subject, and shows much, much more of military history. This is an "experience" rather than a museum as I tend to know it (though increasingly museums nowadays offers "experiences", the museum as a happening).
