The BuildingEdit

The museum initially opened at Kalamış Bay. Later in 1919, it was moved to Galatasaray High School. The museum building, formerly known as Galatasaray Post Office, was restored and remodelled to suit a museum. Galatasaray Museum was renovated and reopened in 2009 with a very successful and contemporary exhibition concept. Galatasaray opened its new museum in 2018. Most trophies and plaques have been moved to the new museum located in the Nef Stadium. The museum in Beyoğlu is still in use. However, most of the trophies are on display in the newly opened stadium museum.
