I wasn't sure about the museum, but when we arrived and really spent time among the exhibits, it was astounding what a fabulous collection they had. From illuminated manuscripts to golden kraters and artwork, the museum may be small but is packed with treasures. The 8th to 10th century Kufic Script manuscripts were amazingly contemporary in their feel. Visit to... More

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.
