Good place to learn about the Persian culture of antiquity from the 2nd millennium BC to the pre-Islamic period to the Islamic era. The evolution & variety of calligraphy was interesting to know.

The layout is relaxed and primitive by the rich heritage of Iran. The first floor, some 300 sqr meters, are very fine transcripts with remarkable miniatures, the richness is mainly here. The rest of the floors are organized as if sampling of other exhibitions, so one can sample some 7000 years of history in fewest number of artifacts with overwhelming... More

A gear museum! It is located in Seyed Khandan, Shariati St. One of the must see places in Tehran for museum lovers. You can see a great collection of objects of Persian art in the museum. It

My tour was to take me to a variety of predictable museums and I did enjoy the National Museum. Reza Abbasi is far smaller and covers some similar territory with fewer pieces. But the fewer prices are spectacular. Cannot recommend this museum highly enough.

This museum is not just excellent, it is amazingly excellent. Exactly the right size, small and specific. Our guide knew the museum's guide and to listen to them talk together, whether in Parsi or English was to hear in their voices their passionate love and knowledge of their country and of its history that they both had. This museum was... More

This small museum in the northern part of the city has a collection, arranged chronologically, of incredibly beautiful artefacts (in gold, bronze, silver, precious stones, glazed tiles, etc.), as well as stunning miniatures, illustrated manuscripts, and examples of early calligraphy. Photography is allowed. Along with the National Museum, this museum is not to be missed.

This museum is not in the top list of attractions of Tehran, I liked its pre-islamic collection, but not a big fan of Iranian isalmic period's art so the next 2 floors were not so interesting for me.
