Iran - Persia - and carpets are synonymous. Here you will see all the different styles from all different regions, from greater Persia - outside modern-day Iran as well. Good explanations of traditional methods and lifestyles. Magnificent works of art on display.

Despite it is the only carpet museum in Iran, it was not worth visiting!😐😏 just a few carpets were exhibited and there wasn’t any guide there to explain!😏 the ticket seller said: most of exquisite carpets are exhibited just in specific occasions!😳
