This renovated 6th-century cistern houses exhibits of virtual and physical models that recreate the nearby Hippodrome as it was in its heyday. Also interesting is the bird's-eye view of Constantinople in 1200, when the Great Palace of Byzantium and the Hippodrome dominated present-day Sultanahmet. When we visited, there were plans to make this informative exhibition permanent.
