  • Wonderful exhibit in a wonderfully restored building. I admit I was attracted to the Museum solely because of the beautiful building that houses it. But to my great surprise the exhibits were very high quality and professionally displayed. A must visit for anyone who is in Tehran. The museum is located in the traffic control region so use public transport. Lots of great restaurants and coffee shops around to visit afterwards.
  • An amazing place to see the beauty, history, glory and Persian art. Required time to pay a nice visit would be 1-2h. To see more pictures like what I put below please visit:
