Welcome to the Weekend!
We hope that you enjoy every second of it! Just in case you don't have anything planned, we have got some great things for you to do. In this weekend's installment of Dollars & Sense, we are focusing on some cool things to do in Istanbul, Turkey. Check it out below.
Visit The Cartoon MuseumSet in a beautiful 17th-century medrese, this is one of the city's more unusual museums. Where instructors once lectured students in Islamic philosophy, they now give lessons in illustration, engraving and screen-printing.The permanent collection, with pieces dating back to the 1870s, illustrates the long-standing popularity of caricature and satire in Turkey. One of the most recurring themes is the insidious influence of the West.Temporary exhibitions are devoted to Turkish and foreign cartoonists. The museum also hosts Turkey's only humor library and an archive open to the public upon request.
