The museum has some interesting artifacts, especially ancient containers and the Salt Man head, but it's small. I enjoyed it, but it's not a major, world-class museum so it might be disappointing to others unless they have a serious interest in ancient Persian culture.

Many oddly-shaped artefacts made of different materials including bitumen are on display which will fascinate those interested in archaeology. Full-size replicas of pieces from the Achaemenid capital Perspepolis were a highlight. Sassanid-era section was limited, perhaps because their capital was...More
