Many fleets of the world were rapidly changing with the effect of industrialization while the border of Ottoman Empire was getting smaller.

In the process of rapid transformation from sailing to machine turnover, the idea of the technological development in the seas and the creation of a new naval force marks the period of Sultan Abdulaziz. Modernization of sailing ships, the purchase of ships from abroad, the construction of a modern shipyard and the construction of new ships and training of personnel made the Ottoman Fleet the third powerful fleet on the world. This exhibition is presented to the visitors with the purpose of highlighting this period.
