  • The Carpet Museum is housed in a modern concrete building with a wide entrance and large foyer draped with two huge carpets. Then you enter the showrooms showing us the natural colours used for dying ...  more »
  • Our visit lasted about 40 mins with a guide. Beautiful patterns and priceless carpets. Shame the exhibits by Kurds had been removed - political?  more »

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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
