Kütahya, the most important ceramic production centre after Iznik during the Ottoman period, is a city that has kept this art alive with its traditional methods until today. In the 18th century, Kütahya tile-making, which gave its most competent examples and then declined with the decrease in production and diversity, was revived in the late 19th century. As an "urban art" in a line between Iznik and Çanakkale tile-making, it became one of the essential parts of the Ottoman art mosaic with its rich product range and continuity.

In the guided tour, social, cultural and communal life in the Ottoman Empire is analysed through the motifs in the works in the Coffee Break exhibition and the Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics Collection. Participants also have the opportunity to see artefacts that are not on display in the show.

Turkish coffee is offered to our guests participating in the exhibition tour at Pera Café. 

The 30-minute guided tour is free of charge, and the language used is Turkish. The museum entrance fee is charged separately except Long Friday. Please note that the quota is limited. To join the tour, you can make a reservation by emailing resepsiyon@peramuzesi.org.tr.

Seaside Leisure

Seaside Leisure

Istanbul’s Seaside Leisure: Nostalgia from Sea Baths to Beaches exhibition brought together photographs, magazines, comics, objects, and books from various private and institutional collections, and told a nostalgic story while also addressing the change and socialization of the norms of how Istanbulites used their free time. Istanbul’s Seaside Leisure was a documentary testament of the radical transformations in the Republic’s lifestyle.
