  • 很喜歡看電影 但伊朗電影很少會進到台灣 除了少數時候用另類的特色得獎 才會看到 這邊可以看到一些紀錄 看另外一個文化的東西是挺不錯的

  • Without great knowledge of Iranian cinema history, it's difficult to relate to the exhibited objects. There is not much of explanation thus my visit was more watching without really understanding. Prices for tourists are like seven times higher than for Iranians. Still a beautiful building with a relaxing park.
  • Beautiful building, landscape and atmosphere to relax, have a cup of tea and buy handmade gifts or books. Breakfast was not very good at Viuna cafe but we enjoyed the garden and chilled out around the building.
  • It is a good cultural spot in Tehran, with nice cafe, theatre and bookshop inside the complex. The Qajar style theatre looked classical but only built in the 70s, However, it was built over an old theatre house with more than 100 year history.
  • موزه سینما برای دیدن مشتاقان
  • Nothing special for a tourist, could be only interesting for people who've followed Iranian cinema in the past 5 decades. Even for people who know about Iranian cinema, the museum mostly offers old movie posters, nothing else. The museum is designed well though. Relatively cheap entrance fee.
