I'm an anthropologist and have taught physical anthropology so this was a real treat, but my friend was just as fascinated as I was. Like so many museums in Iran this is superbly presented lit and laid out. You'll walk on safe walkways over the excavated graves of what must have been high ranking people and/or warriors. Look carefully at the skeletons. These people were very tall and robust; long-legged, some easily topped 6 feet, 180 centimeters. The high ranking woman looks to be about 5'8", about 178 centimeters, tall even by today's standards. You can get much from this visit in less than a half hour.

It's a small but very interesting place to visit. The bodies had survived 5000 years. And the bodies were placed all in foetus position ( believing they will wake up for the new life )and was believed that the ones facing the sun had died during day and ...

When the archaeological researches started at the museum's site, we had the chance to have a visit to the excavation works and the explored stuff including bronze kitchenware and iron weapons. There was more than 40 graves all accommodated human skeletons in couples.
The explored objects had been sent to an academic center to have their age tested with radiocarbon dating and they revealed the age of those object to be about 3800 years. This could mean that the city's history could be as old as this figure and on the other hand could indicate the degree of industrial and social development of the society at that era.
Now the site (graveyard) has been rearranged as semi-opened graves and covered with transparent casings. According to my knowledge there are just a few archaeological sites like this on the Earth and visiting the museum could be a unique experience for any visitor.

It is an extraordinary museum. It was a cemetery and people was buried like a fetus with objects and foods because of circle life. The good news is archeologists kind of decided not to move them to a museum and make that place to a workshop.

It's very interesting museum in the historical city of tabriz.
it's been discovered during a constructional project.
The only bad thing is being close at holidays!! The museum is located in the middle of a commercial area and entrance of the museum is inside of a mall, so that at holidays you can not reach to muesum!

This museum is real heritage from the ancient iron age, almost 10 meters underground you can see sleeping skeletons. The area is not huge and actually it is a graveyard.

For me it's a very special place full of unique history and stories! There you can travel in time and go back to the history of Tabriz layer by layer thanks to the remaining traces of layers on the wall! There are traces on the wall that reveals interesting things about the way of living and cooking... in the past. Of course the skeletons of the cimetery have their own story as well. Enjoy this site👍
