The Museum of Innocence can be seen simply as a historical museum of Istanbul life in the second half of 20th century. It is also, however, a museum created by writer Orhan Pamuk as an integral, object-based version of the fictional love story of his novel of the same name. The Museum of Innocence is meant as a small and personal, local and sustainable model for new museum development. The Museum of Innocence inspires and establishes innovative, new paradigms for the museum sector. This museum fulfils to the highest degree the notion of “public quality”, from the point of view both of heritage and of the public, and taking into account the future, the notion of “public quality”. The museum has received a trophy: The Egg by Henry Moore, which it will keep for one year. Orhan Pamuk dedicated the award to the victims of the Soma mine disaster happened in Turkey this month.
