    Very beautiful archaeological museum with its many regional discoveries but well done especially for fabrics and tapestries collections!

    On two levels, very beautiful expo on textiles of Isfahan. Short but clear and precise explanations. A view to discover history, art and culture of iran.

    The Museum is housed in a beautiful monument. Personally I enjoyed the ground floor with the Gallo-Romaines collections. Objects have been found in the region, and two beautiful mosaics are well highlighted. On the other hand, fabric expo was much less even if the works are beautiful. My kids enjoyed particularly the items from the time Roman.

    Very welcoming staff, exhibitions at the top, all for a price that is unbeatable (thanks the State subsidies!). I would highly recommend.
