Exceptional museum providing a complete review of Iranian art. The Loristan bronzes were as memorable as those in the Archeology museum. The room or miniatures was remarkable and unique in Tehran. The calligraphy collection and Islamicottery were also excellent. Everything was well displayed with English titles.

You can find a brief review of Persian art history there. Apart from the ancient handicrafts that may be interesting for you, I highly recommend visiting historical paintings that showcase Tazhib, Tasheer, Iranian Miniature, etc etc. The name of the museum itself is chosen after a giant Iranian miniaturist living 500 yrs ago.

This museum is spectular! It is small and extremely well presented. The Lorestan bronzes and gold are superb. The Islamic pottery is beautiful. The staff friendly and helpful. There is also a large calligraphy section which may interest some (not me).

This museum is good for those who do not have too much time and want to get an inspiration from the Persian art and culture. The pre-Islamic and Islamic collections contains invaluable items that are not even depicted in the National museum of Iran. The museum shop also have nice objects. Some shops near the museum also sell Iranian souvenirs... More

Don't you have time to visit Archaeological Museum? Don't worry! Reza Abbasy is a small version of that museum with exquisite items on display. What I like about it is the selected items in smaller number, but having a lot to say. the quality of the items are exemplary and mind-blowing. Contemporary artists' exhibitions are also allowed here from time... More

Reza Abbasi unique artwork will surely fascinated art lovers. Iranian art is very different, and when you understand it, so it'll be close. Love, beauty, simplicity, yet the greatness of Persian art is the profile of the museum.
