Specialty Museum Museum
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.

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.
