The beautiful carpets are a look back in the history of Iran. The artistry is amazing and the size of some of the rugs is mind boggling. There was a woman involved in weaving which gives a wonderful example of the labor involved in constructing these beautiful artifacts.

One of the real must see's of Tehran, many precious Persian carpet are held in this museum,
The museum was designed by the last Queen of Iran, Farah Diba Pahlavi. The perforated structure around the museum's exterior is designed both to resemble a carpet loom, and to cast shade on the exterior walls, reducing the impact of the hot summer sun on the interior temperature.

Despite having a decent collection, the museum has no descriptive information of the pieces. The museum staff chase you all the time to (maybe) give the information that is not found in carpets exposed. But if you seek a moment of contemplation of the pieces, maybe having a tail following you is not a great experience.

Great exhibition of carpets, needing though a lot of tlc, as the first floor was closed and the lights could be improved as well as the explanations given the countries rich heritage.

If Persian carpets are among your main interests while visiting Iran, you certainly came to the very right place! Persian carpets are in the back of our minds since we were children! Who does not remember the stories of Aladdin and his flying carpet?The "Carpet Museum of Iran" was created in 1976, mostly inspired by Iran's last Empress, Shahbanu Farah Diba Pahlavi, to preserve this important and most distinguished manifestation of Iranian art and cultural heritages. Its beautiful architectural façade resembles carpet weaving looms and, at the same time, protects external walls from high temperatures, reducing the impact of Iranian Summer in the inner areas. Located at the Northwestern corner of Laleh Park, the "Carpet Museum of Iran" displays, on 3.400m², valuable carpets from the main weaving centers of the country as Karshan, Kerman, Isfahan, Tabriz, Yazd, Shiraz, Khorasan, Heris, Malayer, Naeen and many others. Its library houses over 7.000 books on Persian carpets, their history and design. On the museum's ground floor, you will find the permanent collection. Temporary exhibitions are seen on the upper floor. A small gift shop on the ground floor completes the scene. Unmissable to all Persian carpets' lovers and collectors. Who dares to leave Iran without at least one genuine Persian carpet in the baggage? Enjoy!

Considering the centuries old history Persian carpets, I expected to see many historical masterpieces. However, almost all carpets in the museum are of recent production (20th century or 19th century at best, almost the same stuff one can see in the bazar). Moreover, entire cathegories of Persian carpets are completely ignored and missing, like the kilims for example. Missing are also the works of the nomadic people.
