A small museum that needs more time than the bog ones, as the works of art you'll see here are little masterpieces, full of details you need time to enjoy. In our top10 of Iran for sure.

Different stories contain different historical era objects. There is a calligraphy and miniature treasure there. If you like history, you find really nice items there even from Hakhamaneshian era. I myself enjoyed the jewelries.

We travelled with two archeologists and they were in heaven! This place was beautifully presented and contained some beautiful artefacts of their long history.The map of Persia was of great interest to me. A fantastic place to visit.

As a non museum person, this museum has an excellent collection of artifacts from pre Islamic to 19th century. Not a huge selection but beautifully selected. Enough to introduce you to the different stages or history.

Great museum with fabulous really old pre-Islamic stuff on top floor. Perfect illumination for excellent photos without reflections. Second floor has lovely Islamic pottery and the least interesting, but still beautiful ground floor has miniatures and calligraphy. I consider this the best museum I've seen...More
