It had a function mainly for food, drink and entertainment and it did not have a function that is acceptable for today.” said. Pointing out that they, as the ministry, consider the building to be the attraction point of Istanbul, Ersoy continued as follows: “We have restructured the function of the building as a museum, permanent and temporary exhibition areas, and from now on, Galata Tower is not only a center of attraction, but also another valuable center of Istanbul. We have planned the museum inside as a museum that introduces in detail the valuable buildings and points of Istanbul that you can observe when you look from the tower. The history of Istanbul is very old. There is also an exhibition area that shows its arrival until the Republic date. “
