Trkiye İş Bankası Museum

This building was the center for postal services since 1840. The large wooden building in this area, which was formerly used as a place where the cemetery tax was taken, belonged to the Foundations Ministry and was transformed into "Posthane-i mire" (Superior Post Office) because of its courtyard suitable for the animals, and its proximity the city trade and the waterfront. In 1870, when Postal and Telegraph administrations were merged and given to a supervisory administration, Postahane-i Amire was named "Istanbul Post Office". The wooden structure was demolished in 1890 and in its place the masonry building that is now home to the İş Bank Museum was built. The construction of the building, which was opened on 23 September 1892, was carried out by the contractor Sheikh Ahmed Muhtar Talat Effendi.

In 1927 the building was transferred to Trkiye İş Bankası (Business Bank of Turkey). Work for opening the building as Trkiye İş Bankası Museum began in 2005 and was completed in 2008.
