The Exhibition of the Turkish-Islamic Art starts with the room on the first floor where metal, ceramic and glass artifacts from the Seljuk, Ayyubid, Mamluk, Timurid and Safavid periods are exhibited in chronological order. Bronze, brass and copper works of art belonging to these periods include pitchers, bowls, plates, candlesticks, lamps, mortars, padlocks and dirhams.

Among the tombak and monogrammed silver artifacts from the Ottoman period are military equipment, kitchenware, mirrors, bath bowls are writing sets on display.

The most appealing displays consist of pieces with enamel and precious stones.

Sherbet glasses, cup holders, desert cups, clocks and snuff boxes specially manufactured in Europe for the Ottoman market in the 18th and 19th centuries are a prominent collection of the Museum.

Sadberk Hanım Museum’s Iznik ceramic collection is one of the leading collections in the world. Iznik ceramics on display including wares for daily use like plates, bowls, vases and jugs decorated in a naturalistic style with rose, tulip, carnation and hyacinths motifs and tiles manufactured for mosques, tombs, madrasahs, hammams with designs prepared in the palace workshop, show the development in Iznik ceramic art from the end of 15th till the middle of the 17th century. The achievement of Ottoman ceramic art between 18th and 20th centuries can be seen in the displays where Kütahya and Çanakkale ceramics are exhibited.

Sadberk Hanım Museum’s collection of Chinese porcelain is a modest one, but it includes unique pieces. The collection is an important treasure for the ones who are interested in examining the Chinese porcelains used during the Ottoman period.

In the second floor of the Turkish-Islamic section, outstanding examples of Ottoman weaving, embroidery and a rich collection of Ottoman women's costumes are featured. Amongst the collection, dresses with three panelled skirt have been indispensable for centuries. The skirt of these dresses consists of two front and one back pieces and have two deepslits on the both sides. These dresses usually were made of brocade or fabrics called sevai and selimiye.

Worn for special occasions like henna nights or weddings, ‘Bindallı’ dresses are heavily embroidered velvet costumes using gold or silver colored metal thread. In the museum, there are also costumes cut in the European manner dating back to the beginning of the 20th century influenced by French style.
