National Museum of Iran

National Museum of Iran is the largest and oldest museum in Iran. Located in 30th Tir Street, National Museum of Iran is a massive complex comprised of two museums (The Museum of Ancient Iran (Mūze-ye Irān-e Bāstān) and the Museum of the Islamic Era) and various research departments. The Museum of Ancient Iran is the oldest of the two and is known for its extraordinary design and priceless collection. Along with Tehran Grand Bazaar and Golestan Palace, this museum is the most-visited of Central Tehran’s tourist attractions. The Museum of Ancient Iran showcases a unique collection of archeological findings (the oldest of which dates back to Lower Paleolithic age, 3 million years ago), numismatics (coins, medals and etc.), historical manuscripts and artistic collections. The building has two floors and a basement where you can find temporary exhibitions of contemporary art plus a café and a gift shop. The adjacent building that boasts a modern architecture in contrast to the Museum of Ancient Iran, is known as the Museum of Islamic Era. The name says it all! Here the history and culture of Iran’s Islamic era is celebrated by the exhibition of more than 1500 historic relics from different periods of Iranian history in the wake of Arab Invasion. As an important national heritage, National Museum of Iran is an indispensable part of Tehran day tours. If you are a solo traveler and are wondering how to go to National Museum of Iran, the cheapest and most straightforward route is undoubtedly via Tehran’s metro lines. National Museum of Iran’s address is at far south of 30th Tir Street and that means it is only a short walk to Imam Khomeini Metro Station (one of the largest stations of Tehran’s Metro where most of the lines have a stop). The only thing to consider before leaving your accommodation is National Museum of Iran opening hours which are from 9 AM to 6 PM. The entrance fee is currently 500,000 in Iranian rial. If your time in the capital is limited, the best way to make most of your day is to include the National Museum of Iran together with Tehran Grand Bazaar and Golestan Palace in your one-day itinerary.
