Fodor's Review

In an unusual historical-preservation choice, Cunda's Taxiarchis Church, a landmark dating to 1873, has been wonderfully restored and reopened in 2014 as a museum that also houses an eclectic array of objects belonging to the collection of Turkish businessman and philanthropist Rahmi M. Koç. The restoration has saved the elegant neoclassical architecture and decor of the church and its religious iconography from disrepair. Unfortunately, the display of vintage cars and vehicles, ship anchors, nautical instruments, antique dolls and toys, and other curiosities overwhelms the space.
