The late Gevheri Osmanoğlu who was one of the grand-chidren of Sultan Abdülhamid II (1876-1909) and his hairs, in 1984 donated their collections containg saz (musical instrument), musical note and stone gramophone records to Aynalıkavak Summer Palace to get them exhibited. Consequently, as Aynalıkavak Summer Palace was a place where Selim III: (1789-1807) lived and composed, a project about making a Turkish Musiki (music) center was established. Following, some other collectioners and traditional turkish musicians (sazende) donated various instruments. Besides, as the musical instruments belonging to Istanbul Municipality Collection were added to the Aynalıkavak Summer Palace Collection, the general foundation of Aynalıkavak Sazları was formed, that will grow larger in the future The museum collection contains 65 musical instrument, over 200 stone record, many musical note and the press.
