Water Museum, Yazd

3.9
#7 of 87 in Museums in Iran
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.

  • The building where the museum is housed was quite impressive. In an old traditional house. It was a bit difficult to understand how the water system was working though. In depth information of specific processes but overview was missing I felt. Good to mention that locals on the line were shocked when they saw the entrance fee for foreigners.
  • I thought it was very interesting. You should visit this at the beginning of your Yazd trip. It teaches you a lot about Yazd history and you will see a lot of it back when you visit the rest of the city.
  • If you need to find everything about how in past they used water visit there
  • Depicting how hard our ancesters worked to achieve precious water
  • very informative, you can learn a lot about water distribution in the city, majority of objects could use dusting and models at exhibition could use some renovation, but in overall it's really nice place to visit.
