National Museum of Iran
The National Museum of Iran (Persian: موزه ی ملیِ ایران - Muze ye Melli ye Irān‎) is located in Tehran, Iran.
It is the combination of two buildings which include the Museum of Archaeological Iran ("Muze ye Irān e Bāstān", a brick, Sasanian revival building inaugurated in 1937), and the modernistic white travertine Museum of the Islamic Era ("Muze ye Dowrān e Eslāmi", inaugurated in 1972).
It is the best place to see the history of the Persia through preserved ancient and medieval Persian antiquities. These works include fine pottery vessels, historic metal objects, textiles remains from different regions of Iran, and also some rare books and coins.
There are a number of research departments in the museum, including Paleolithic and Osteological departments, and a center for Pottery Studies.
