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.
