  • The museum is a very pleasant surprise. You can really feel the passion the guys run the museum with. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. I don’t share the opinion of some of the negative reviews that the place is too expensive. It is a private museum which comes with a great service. The absolute highlight was the concert at the end. It was a performance of roughly 15 minutes by three people. Would definitely recommend.
  • Must visit in Esfahan if you like music. So much love to detail. Guides explain everything with passion and lot of knowledge. At the end of the tour you even get a free private concert. The collection of instruments is really interessting. You can even touch the instruments. Totally recommended.
  • Great museum with an excellent collection. A very talented guide was explaining everything passionately. I also had the chance to listen to a live concert; excellent ensemble!
  • A great and perfect collection of originally Iranian musical instruments. From the museum docents you will get the complete information about the instruments. And about that live performance I should say that I just loved it. Believe me it's worth it to spend your money and time for visiting it. ❤❤
  • A must-visit experience in Isfahan, and one of the most lively and personal. You will see the whole orchestra of Persian instruments, and have the opportunity to attend a free concert of world-class standard. The musicians who performed for us in the museum routinely tours Europe and US.

Where to stay in Esfahan

Esfahan includes a smattering of accommodations that provide variety, if not depth of choice. Along the main Chahar Bagh drag and the streets that lead off it, you'll find a few fairly basic hotels, providing decent rooms in the city center, close to the main attractions and services. Hostels can be found, with dormitory rooms providing particularly good options for budget-conscious travelers who want to be right in the thick of things close to the main square and the bazaar. The most luxurious hotels in town lie further to the south, set in historic buildings overlooking the river.
