Çukurcuma is a neighborhood located in Istanbul’s Beyoğlu district. The area is a well-known destination for vintage and antique collectors. Çukurcuma is also home to Orhan Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence. Orhan Pamuk conceived of his novel (of the same name) and museum consecutively. While writing his novel, Pamuk scoured Çukurcuma seeking mid-20th-century mementos. The museum is a representation of the things seen, collected and dreamed of by his characters. All of the items are meticulously arranged in boxes and display cabinets.
