  • A museum worth visiting, also because it is situated in a nice Park where agrees a walk and adjacent to the museum of Contemporary Art. The carpets are of an exceptional quality, many of the 20th century but someone from the 18th. The craftsmanship is amazing as well as conservation status and size, not seen. The colors being so well preserved they appear in their glory, especially Greens. Seeing the rug in the first room with all characters that have made history. By Jesus, the Sun King, Napoleon, etc. Museum to see for collection only.

  • You would need a few hours to appreciate the craftsmanship and art that is in this museum. Each carpet tells a story. It is situated beside Laleh park which is great for picnics and strolls.  more »

  • 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...
