Reza Abbasi Museum, Tehran
(4.3/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Visit the legacy of Queen Farah Pahlavi and a one-of-a-kind art collection at Reza Abbasi Museum. Exhibitions include both pre-Islamic and Islamic art, with some more than 4,000 years old. Walk through the chronologically organized museum and see everything from prehistoric artifacts to 20th century objects. Scholars will find over 10,000 books about history and art; unfortunately many documents were destroyed before the 1979 Islamic Revolution. While here, you can take courses in calligraphy, watercolor, oil painting, and drawing and create your own art at the museum.
