  • Interesting museum and nice area overall. Entry to the park surrounding the museum is free. There are also nice cafes around here. We missed some more information about Iranian movies, i.e. what are they about, what are the topics typically covered etc.
  • This is an incredible place. They have done such an amazing job. So creative. Definitely visit.
  • Great ambiance and lovely architecture. Here you'll find a café, cinemas, shops and public restrooms.
  • The cinema museum is one of the best museums located in north part of Tehran, known as the Garden of Ferdos mansion. This mansion is related to the Qajar period and it was ordered by Mohammad Shah Qajar. The current building was selected as the Museum of theater in 2002 and its first director was Azatollah Entezami (One of the most famous actors in Iran). The museum's treasures include old cinematic photographs and equipment, memoirs from both domestic and foreign artists from the past to the present, cinema and film making documents, as well as awards and statues that artists have donated to the museum. Fortunately, this gardener will be of great importance to your garden, as well as to the greenery, and after you become familiar with it, you will notice this. There are 2 cafes in the museum that pay for the service. You can also visit cultural product stores in this collection and buy products like music albums and book. It is easy access by taxi, bus and underground as well.
  • Nice place to hang out for tea. The staff is very nice and the landscape in the evening is brilliant. Had a great time.
