The Rezan Has Museum is a private museum in Istanbul, Turkey dedicated to culture and arts. Ahu Has daughter in law of the philanthropist Turkish businessman Kadir Has, founded the museum in May 2007. The museum is named after Rezan Has, wife of Kadir Has.
The museum has a very unusual archaeological collection, and provides space for exhibitions within the Kadir Has University's building, a European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage winning redevelopment from the historical "Cibali Tabacco Factory".
The museum consists of a cistern dating back to the 11th century, called "Karanlık çeşme" (literally: "The Dark Fountain"), which is one of the few Byzantian structures outside of the Walls of Constantinople along Golden Horn.
