  • Although this place has seen better days but it is still worth a visit. If there is any special activity in it it is even better.  more »
  • We had right to a surprise visit from the Museum who was not registered was our program. We have not regretted his visit.

  • This place is amazing. I've had quite some unique experiences here. The architecture is fantastic and genius.
  • 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.
  • Fantastic collection. Beautifully designed building. The curved ramp is reminiscent of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in NYC. A must see if you visit Tehran.
  • Other than memorable exhibitions i saw here, it has a seductive architecture which makes it more than place.
  • 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.
