Ankara Rahmi M. Koç Museum opened in 2005 and is the first Industrial Museum of Ankara. The museum located in two historic buildings. Çengelhan and Safranhan had different functions in the classical and late periods of the Ottoman Empire and the early Turkish Republic Era. These historic buildings have been restored and turned into museums to house the preservation of cultural heritage today. The museum is a private non-profit museum dedicated to the collection, research, conservation, and exhibit of industrial and engineering-related objects and documents from all periods and countries from past to present, and to the transfer of industrial heritage from generations to generations. Rahmi M. Koç Museum uses its collections and resources to inform the public about the history of industry and industrial design and to support academic research on this subject.

Old cars, trains, maritime objects, models, machines, scientific instruments, and various equipments of agriculture, printing, communication, medicine, and pharmacy are in the museum. There are also daily items, toys, dollhouses. The museum houses the precious object of our great leader Atatürk. Also, there is an artisan street that includes the installation of the old artisan workshops and shops.
