The inauguration of Pera Museum in  2005 was Suna and Inan Kırac Foundation’s first step toward making this choice spot of the city wide-scaped cultural arena on various fields. The building that now functions as museum and cultural center was built in 1893 by architect Achille Manousso.

Bristol Hotel
It is known as Bristol Hotel until recently, the historical building was bought by foundation and underwent a complete restoration by architect Sinan Genim. Pera Museum shares its three permanent collections Orientalist Paintings, Anatolian Weights and Measures, and Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics.

The third floor of the Pera Museum is devoted to exhibitions of 17th- to 19th-century Orientalist paintings from the superb collections of the Kıraç family and the Gönül family.  The collections include more than 300 works by European, Ottoman and Turkish masters. The first floor holds two permanent collections, of Kütahya faience, and Anatolian weights and measures.
