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.

  • Water is the source of life and for a city you need a lot of it. It's interessting to see how they brought the water drom the mountain to the city. Not the newest museum but still good to visit when you're interested in such things.
  • If you are interested in knowing about Qanats and water systems in the past, do not miss this place.
  • Interesting, there could be more explanations. Entrance: 150.000 Rial
  • جذاب و ديدنى very cool and very nice
  • Fascinating topic, some good pieces but there is still an overall lack of homogeneity and story, also not everything is translated.
