Hot on the heels of the record-breaking residency at the London Science Museum, the global tour began with Istanbul the ideal first host city as the exhibition formed part of the ‘Capital of Culture’ programme. The 1001 Inventions exhibition was entitled ‘1001 ICAT BILIM VE TEKNOLOJININ 1000 YILLIK SERUVENI’ and given an iconic position in Sultanahmet Square, nestled in between the Hagia Sophia and the Great Blue Mosque, two of Istanbul’s most famous landmarks.
