  • It's mostly different types of containers like bowls and ... from bronze and glass. There's also ancient skeleton from a few thousand years ago. The other floor has a coin and stamp collection. The basement is only sculptures from a contemporary artist.
  • It has some good artifacts specially if you are a fan of old coinage and ancient history. The basement is just waste of time. First and second floors are good to visit. They had a great and patient guide. To my surprise she was blonde and I think she was a history major student. Some old men were giving her hard time but she handled them very professional. They had another great guide with so much information in bookstore in basement. He wears glasses and has good knowledge about monuments around the city. I enjoyed talking to him.
  • One of the most important museums in Iran
  • It's good museum
  • A bit disappointing for the price - but mit completely terrible
