  • We know very little about Iran. We don't even know they have a thriving art scene. Once you enter the art museum here, you will see different art/media exhibitions. The museum often changes its exhibition. This gives more Iranian artists the opportunity to show off their work. Outside the museum, you will find many sculptures. It's a great pleasure to be opening up to the world.

  • There is a world class exhibit for the next three months which encompasses the works of Ali Akbar Sadeghi, the most prominent Iranian artist whose works span around half a century. Paintings, animation, sculpture, audio bites, etc. A marvel of imagination beautifully said out for your senses, in a unique architectural venue in Tehran. Whether you catch this exhibit or not, don't skip this museum.
  • If you are a Art lover then you must visit Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art to enjoy contemporary Art. Different exhibitions are organized too so, you can visit the Museum in your free time. When first time, I came in Tehran, this was a first place which I visited and I like it indeed very much. Please, if you don't have interest in Art then don't waste your money & time as it could be boring for you to visit the museum.
  • The Museum of Contemporary Arts is one of the most prominent Iranian and world museums, and is home to tremendous treasures of the world's greatest artists such as Gauguin, Renoir, Picasso, Magritte, Ernest, Polock, Warhol, Levitt, and Jacques. The construction of this museum is inspired by the Iranian wind turbines. This beautiful museum was built in 1978 and is located at the corner of the Laleh Park of Tehran, which was then called the Farah Park. The museum has 9 galleries, with 3 galleries dedicated to preserving the valuable works of the artists, and 6 temporary galleries are located on the visitor's visitor's site, so that visiting them for those who go to the Museum of Contemporary Art will be very simple and pleasant. Was. There are works of art and sculptures from artists from different countries around the world. The most famous of these works is the "Therapist" by René Magritte, a Belgian painter.
  • They try to improve, but most staff are there for years and some lack serious motivation to do their job, the museum though outsources some activities which goes better than before usually... Still the strong points remain the architecture and the collection...
  • Amazing architecture inspired by windcatchers of yazd, build by kamran Diba holding the finest art collection out of north america and Europe. They're holding paintings by andy warhol, Jackson pollock, mark rothko, gogen and Picasso here 😨
