Compare to other museums, this place tries to use modern method to make a live museum which can attract your attention. I think it could be a good place to visit for locals, but for tourists it might be a little bit boring.

It is a very nice museum. It is related to iranian art and history. It is located in National Garden in Imam Khomeini square and I totally recommend visiting the garden and the museums inside it to both locals and tourists.

I love the inside environment more than outside, it has a interesting exhibition underground and the biography of Malek is in first floor with all his memorials. second and third floor is for library and you need card.

Very organised, friendly staff and ready to help. It has the most beautiful paintings from Kamalol Molk. The museum has a rich collection of lacquered book bindings. Also you can see two pages of Shah Jahan moraga written by Mir Ali.
