Carpet Museum of Iran

Carpet Museum of Iran

Located in Tehran next to Laleh Park, and founded in 1976, by Farah Diba Pahlavi, the last Queen of Iran. This museum is open Tuesdays to Thursdays from 9 am to 5 pm.  The Carpet Museum of Iran exhibits a variety of Persian carpets from all over Iran like Kerman, Kashan, Tabriz, dating from the 17th century to the present. I think all travelers in Iran should visit Iranian carpets at least once; it could be a great experience. You can be more familiar with kinds of carpet and all designs. You can learn that where carpets belong to and which materials they use. They all have different colors, patterns, materials and size. With lots of details to discover, some carpets are just like pictures that are telling a story.  The Carpet Museum is composed of two exhibition galleries, over two floors. The museum ground floor is designed for permanent exhibitions and the Carpet Museum upper floor often hosts temporary carpet exhibitions, such as Kilims and regional displays. There are some other facilities in the museum including a library with around 7000 books, which are available to researchers and enthusiast.
