    This museum includes all objects (parts old, calligraphy, drawings, paintings, stamps) to an Iranian philanthropist: Hossein malek who lived to 101. This man dedicated its riches to the people of iran in order to grow the culture for all. The Museum is free and merit largely the detour. Just to learn more about this awesome character!

    I love the inside environment more than outside, it has a interesting exhibition underground and the biography of Malek is in first floor with all his memorials. second and third floor is for library and you need card.

Where to stay in Tehran

The northern districts of Tehran possess a more suburban, cosmopolitan feel, and a more spacious form, with a number of accommodations geared towards international tourism. Luxury hotels with pools overlooking the parks sit alongside some more basic and humble offerings, usually located on the lesser side streets. The southern districts offer a livelier experience, where guesthouses, hostels, and simple hotels line the confusing bundle of winding streets. Of course, some areas of the south open up a little, and here you'll find a good number of standard and mid-range hotels with varying levels of amenities.
