I visited the museum with my friends. They find it fascinating. The structure and design are really interesting. You can get to know the history of Iran-Iraq War and the braveness of soldiers there.

Presently surprised with the museum. While the museum tells the stories of bravery, suffering and attributions of the Iranian people in their defence against the external aggressor, Saddam Hussein which is basically and fundamentally true, it also displays the Iranian creativity in exhibiting a beautiful...More

Really interesting place. It contains a lot of real things related to holy defense and a lot of military equipment. I believe it is a best museum in Tehran.
