“Not impressive”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

At the suggestion of our guide, we delayed our trip out of Yazds for the museum. It is not particularly impressive as we have already seen a number of more authentic qunats in Iran. We consider this a low light amongst the many interesting sites in Iran.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The Water Museum is quite fascinating and gives an excellent introduction to the qanat (canal) system of Iran. Given that Yazd probably has the most number of qanats in Iran, this is a good place to learn about the system. The displays are mostly labelled in both Farsi and English and you actually get to see a real-live example of a qanat.

“A good way to get the low-down on the qanats.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Our guide took us through the museum, and explained the exhibits - this made the visit all the more rewarding for us.
