Specialty Museum
Head to Water Museum and see the various ways the ancient city of Yazd acquired and distributed water, the most sought-after commodity in the arid desert region. The museum, established in 2000, sits in a restored mansion from the early 20th century and dedicates most of its displays on the history of the precious liquid in Yazd and the means used to obtain it. On a tour of the museum, you can acquaint yourself with the ancient 'qanat' systems of delivering water from the mountain slopes to the town and see a variety of artifacts and equipment used to dispense it for drinking, washing, and irrigation. By using our Yazd travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Water Museum and other attractions in Yazd.

  • You can go deep inside to some underground chamber to feel the coolness inside, which was functioned as ancient cold storage space. certainly you can also understand the qanat system through the exhibition but there is no part of real qanat system inside.
  • Could be great, but It wasn't! No guide was available and the prined descriptions were not precise and detailed.
  • Fascinating topic, some good pieces but there is still an overall lack of homogeneity and story, also not everything is translated.
  • I think this is the water museum...anyway, it's a great museum with interesting info on the qanat system and a clear demonstration of how it keeps underground rooms cool. Well worth it.
  • If you like the architecture of Qantas go and visit it.
