  • Fine pieces of art. The museum itself is actually a masterpiece of architecture. A must, if one visits Tehran.
  • I visited the museum during Parviz Tanavel exhibit...I can't say how good they pulled it off...It was fantastic. The way a visitor advances through exhibits and how are they arranged was done just excellently... Although it's always empty, since Iranian people aren't much into art...
  • This is our museum. in diffrent periods of time you can see contemporary works of arts of iranian and other artists from all around the world.
  • Absolutely the best contemporary museum in the world! The collection is stunning and has no match in this world! This is easily the best museum in Tehran and pribably the entire Iran!
  • Mysterious museum. Most of the galleries are designed underground and it looks smaller than what it really is on the street view. A wide ramp covered with old fashioned dotted ceramics takes you to the galleries. Expose concerete and rough finish for inerior surface are the specific features of its interior design.

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.
