  • In addition to showing films since it's a cinema, it is a meeting point for young people after the lesson. Teenage girls and boys gather there. There are sometimes also stands where they sell crafts. Cafes.

  • My last day in Tehran, Iran to spend time in the museum. The Museum is located not far from Tajrish Bazaar holds a wealth of cinema film that Iran is indeed very I like. It's a shame when I visited were no screenings of the film there. The Museum also has a cafe and a small Bookstore. Must visit when in Tehran, Iran.

  • This is an incredible place. They have done such an amazing job. So creative. Definitely visit.
  • 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.
  • Oh all the lovely memories! Small museum but has so many cute little corners to enjoy and reminiscence
  • Super nice , old and fantastic. You can walk and feel old garden and building all over there. The movie place has a nice ceiling . Awesome
