Inspired by Nobel Prize-winning author Orhan Pamuk’s eponymous 2008 novel, the date published in almost sixty countries; the museum carries the distinction of being the world’s first to be inspired by a novel. In his novel The Museum of Innoncence, Orhan Pamuk describes how Kemal collects his lover Füsun’s belongings and the logic behind how he sets them out in the musseum. These objects, wich embody daily life in Istanbul during the second half of the twentieth century, are displayed in the museum in carefully designed boxes and cabinets.
