The museum has 3 floors with carpets from old to new designs. Very well organized and with good explanation. If you are into the carpets, then it is a good place to be. Just to admire and wish you would have one for yourself :-)

I went in here with a colleague as we had an hour to spare. It is very well done, with lots of examples of different types of carpet, different patterns, and some videos and more interactive aspects. The carpet map of carpets is particularly curious! The museum is also an interesting design, and a great space. Well worth a short... More

If you are interested in art and carpet, it's a good museum to visit. Most of carpets in this museum are from Iran, thought. It's a good place to visit.

This museum, in the beautiful downtown waterfront park, not only has a very clever rolled-carpet design for the building itself, it is filled with carpets and tapestries from all over the country. The history of each area's fabrics and carpets in fascinating and beautifully displayed. It is an over-dose of carpets, but you'll be glad you visited. Also, the gift... More
