Bought on line and printed a paper copy. Easily accepted at every use. We only used it for entrance to Topkapi and Harem, and the Galata Tower - and it was worth the cost for just these locations. You can get the pass at many locations in Istanbul, but I like to plan ahead!

It was a good decision to buy the museum pass here, otherwise you have to expect a long queue everywhere ... The only thing that bothered me was that the employees in the galata tower did not want to recognize the electronic tickets. I had to justify myself and defend myself ...
