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.

Second as I use a discount card I am not sure about the entrance fee but in Iran its usually less than one dollar which is nothing to discuss. The museum is small and I spent about one hour to visit... More

Hidden yet contains the most incredible collection of Persian artifacts. We were lucky to have an intellegent English speaking historian give us a guided tour (that is not her job at the museum). Must see and preferably have a guide.

In addition to the archaeological treasures, this museum contains a collection of classical book illustrations/painting. There are some wonderful gold and silver items from Achaemenid periods.

I was stunned by seeing all that amazing jewelry made over 2000 years ago. Unbelievable! And also there's a collection of Iranian miniature paintings on the 2nd floor which was amazing.
