Zübeyde Hanım Museum Ship information
The M/V Zübeyde Hanım, named after Atatürk’s beloved mother, is a 50m-long, 307-tonne ferry built in 1987 and used in İstanbul until early 2014, when it opened as a museum devoted to rescue operations at sea. It’s worth a visit to see some of the old medical equipment and ship’s furnishings.
