  • Seriously awful. Very little information or primary sources. The really tacky displays e.g. "hall of butterflies" (ugh) do little to honour the lives lost or evoke the situation in which a fledgling republic defended against an aggressor, does not acknowledge the various backgrounds (e.g. not exclusively Islamic) of those who made these sacrifices. No insight. No complexity. Not suprising there are also nearly no visitors in this massive place. The only good thing I can say is that a museum guide was nice and helpful when I asked for the way out.
  • If you like army machines and weapons, you have to see this museum. kids will enjoy it with all those ships, airplanes, cannons and weapons. it has to be mentioned that it is the most modern museum of Iran and you can enjoy presentations and guide inside the building if you want. there is also 3D cinema with presentation on water wall that can be enjoyable during ceremonies. Do not forget that you can not go there after working time.
  • It is totally insane that paying for 20,000 tomans to see their so-called weapons. I will consider entering it with free of charge, but not a even cent.
  • The history of 8 years of war between Iran and Iraq is summarized in this place.
  • Greay. Just it
