The building is not nice but ancient jewelry and earthen dishes and ... are excellent. You can give electronic audience from office of museum. Museum has 3 floors it's better you begin from 3rd floor ( before Islam ) in this floor you can find ancient things from B.C.

The Lorestan (region of West Iran) bronzes (horse bits essentially) are from the 8th to 7th century BC. Seeing them helped me appreciate their intricacy and art. Many other highlights included oustanding gold... More

Good place to learn about the Persian culture of antiquity from the 2nd millennium BC to the pre-Islamic period to the Islamic era. The evolution & variety of calligraphy was interesting to know.

The rest of the floors are organized as if sampling of other exhibitions, so one can sample some 7000 years of history in fewest number of artifacts with overwhelming... More
