Reviewed December 27, 2011

it's an unexampled property. you should spend one day or more to see all the antiques and etc.
if you want to come to Tehran you should not miss it.
this place is really amazing and also has a shop you could buy handicraft and fake image of prototypes.
it's also very inexpensive to buy tickets for visiting the museum.

“Persia in a glance”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

If you are in Iran and have no time to visit historical places in Isfahan, Shiraz and other old cities, I highly recommend you to visit the National museum of Iran. It consists of 2 buildings: the older one which is the Ancient Iran museum and the newer which is the Museum of Islamic era. The museum of Ancient Iran exhibits very nice and famous objects fro prehistoric era to Sassanian era. Many carvings and objects from Persepolis are also shown there. It takes around 4 hours to visit both museums but this means just walking by the objects. The cafe of the museum in the backyard is also a nice place to have a break in between and enjoy yourself a drink.

“Discover Iran's Ancient Past”
Reviewed October 19, 2011

The museum itself is housed in a beautiful building. The collection is excellent but the layout is basic and is in need of some revamping.
