This is a must see in Iran if you are planing to travel to Tehran and other ancient Persian sites. You get to see a handpicked collection of ancient statues and artifacts exhibited in chronological order.

We spent a couple of hours wandering around these exhibit halls, impressed by the number and size of the displays. There is even a special corner designed for helping blind visitors understand some of Persian history. Don't get trapped by a sticking restroom door!

I recommend this historical place in Tehran. It is located on Emam Khomeyni Street, and Melal-e-Mottahed Street, south part of Tehran. You could go through Sardar-e-Bagh-e-Melli and reach yourself to this vast space full of vintage buildings which were made during Qajar's Era. I should...More
