You can visit there as a tourist or to join an event to socialize. It's like mixture of all. You can see exhabitions, watch movie, make some search in library, drink your coffe and make good photos inside.

It is a great place with a library and a pretty coffee shop to chill and study. Also it is a perfect location for a photoshoot. And it is a stunning example of contemporary architecture in Istanbul.
