The museum has three floors; start at the top and work your way down. The top floor has Neolithic pieces along with maps (in German) of various conquests and occupations of the region. The second floor has interesting bronze and spectacular gold pieces. The third floor was mostly miniature paintings, illuminations, and calligraphic pieces. There is little in the way... More

This place is one of my favorites. One of the best museums in Tehran. It has a fair amount of artifacts which cover wide variety of eras as well as different nations and tribes of this region. If you like Archaeology or History you should visit. It takes many hours to see and explore everything.

Magnificent museum with so many priceless artifacts, statues, rhyton, plates, etc. This museum has three stories. I suggest start from the top floor (pre-Islamic era) and work your way down to the ground level. The tickets are super cheap only $4 for all the valuable things that you can see!! I would allow at least 2hours to go through everything.... More

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).
