Different stories contain different historical era objects. There is a calligraphy and miniature treasure there. If you like history, you find really nice items there even from Hakhamaneshian era. I myself enjoyed the jewelries.

The collection was started by the Shah's wife. Many of the objects came from private collections. This means they do not have exact dates. There are some fantastic pieces from the Achaemenid & Sassanian periods,as well as objects from Luristan. There are also some good...More
