Dear travelers,
Does anybody know how e-tickets for IST museums work (Hagia Sofia, Topkapi, Chora)? On
Are they date/time specific as many sites in EU are? What I gather from the web they are not.
Regretfully, we can't go for museum pass as we're not fitting into 15 days frame. We'r staying in IST f/1.5 days, then returning back in 16 days for another 4 days.... Many thanks for clarification.

The Istanbul Museum Pass is valid for 5 days, not 15 days. The MuzeKart is for Turkish citizens only and is valid for one year.
