  • It was on the cusp of 2012/13 when I visited so this is a rather later review - as I have some time on my hands. You can purchase tickets at the museum (the price varies depending on who's buying it -...  more »
  • It is close after 4, so yu should go there before 4 P.M. It is the heritage of Iranian culture. An art, it is really worth it to see, specially see Kerman's carpets.

  • Despite a lovely collection of carpets, the extremely poor lightning (some carpets are in such dark shade that it's literally impossible to distinguish their features) and the lack of english descriptions and information put this museum below average. It would be easily improved, but isn't worth the time (nor the 150,000 rial ticket) in its current state.
  • just think how difficult is making a carpet then understand this art
  • I find this museum not that interesting. It looks like a big carpet shop
  • It is a small museum in nearby place of Topkapı sarayı. It has three parts. So after visiting Topkapı sarayı you can visit also it. If you visit this museum, it will help you to grow a concept about carpet. You know that, carpet is a tradition of Turkey. The ticket price of Halı Müzesi is 10 lira for general people. For students, who lives in Turkey it is only one lira.
  • Very nice, if you like to know about carpet industry in many different types and views, It's better to see there.... There is Persian description for each masterpiece that need to translate in English with better view at least...
