  • It's such a wonderful museum but sadly the carpets descriptions are only in Persian language (Farsi) and there's only a brief description in English. I really enjoyed watching "Boostan" Carpet having a 3D pattern and it was really interesting to me. There was another carpet that really amazed me. It depicts 160 of the most famous people in the world including Persian and European kings...A carpet full of stories!
  • An amazing collection of Persian rugs from different historical periods and different areas of Iran. Also sometimes, an exhibition is held outside the museum in which carpet merchants gather around and present carpets from all over Iran.
  • Beautiful carpets, but the museum itself needs a big renovation.
  • I've visited this museum recently, I agree with most of the reviews, the museum suffers from proper lightening and english description of carpets is really disappointing. Nevertheless it presents a beautiful collection of Iranian carpts, specially Kerman carpets are marvelous.
  • If you like Persian rugs, then definitely visit

Where to stay in Tehran

The northern districts of Tehran possess a more suburban, cosmopolitan feel, and a more spacious form, with a number of accommodations geared towards international tourism. Luxury hotels with pools overlooking the parks sit alongside some more basic and humble offerings, usually located on the lesser side streets. The southern districts offer a livelier experience, where guesthouses, hostels, and simple hotels line the confusing bundle of winding streets. Of course, some areas of the south open up a little, and here you'll find a good number of standard and mid-range hotels with varying levels of amenities.
