The museum is explaining how the quanats were used. The information in English is minimal which should be improved.

Our guide, Hamid Akhoundzadegan, made this the place we first visited when we got to Yazd. It gave us a great opportunity to learn how Yazd, and probably much of Iran, has maintained water supplies where waster is certainly not abundant. Fascinating.
