  • 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. ❤❤
  • Great velue for your money. At first you will see that it is a bit more expensive than others sightseeing spots, but here you get a guided tour and a live concert for free!! So it's totally worth it. Go and support this very friendly and knowledgeable people who make this museum a great experience.
