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.

The iron age museum is an archaeological field, in which you can see the ancient tombs: the corps, the special objects buried with the dead,.... It is also a great place for studying geology, you can completely see geologic layers of earth in Tabriz. It is next to kabood (goy) mosque.

I think this can be really the best unique thing you can visit in Tabriz! despite its not so popular and even locals doesn't know much about it but it's really amazing seeing the body and the soil layers that have been appeared exactly from the history's heart!

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👍

unique museum
Apr 2018 • Family
it was around 20 years ago that Tabriz municipality planned for a big mall in the area which now the museum is located . the area is a historical area and seems a lot of items were demolished and destroyed during excavation and construction activity . unfortunately construction a mall was more important than of such a valuable historical area that returns around 3000 ~ 4000 years ago . anyhow no doubt what is remained is very magnificent and valuable . the museum is intact graveyard that only has been covered by a shelter , whereas the area is too small and there was no more investigation hopefully it is too interested and visitors make have a good sense of graving at Iron Ages . highly recommended to visit .

From the dept of history
Feb 2017
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.

A fresh breeze of ancient
Sep 2016 • Family
This is my own experience: I said wow! Here's my hometown and I didn't know that I am in an ancient civilization related to Iron age! In a strange way, whoever had been buried those times have been saved almost completely because of minerals and some other chemical reactions on bones and you may see that they had been very tall persons, about two meters for men! Some of their kitchen utensils are saved till now. Amazing, shortly.
