Ardabil Anthropology Museum

In every part of the globe, there are places that mean more than just bricks and mortar to its people. Such places possess a valuable and rare quality that could not be purchased with our usual currencies, or be forged by the best of our skills. What has given these locations their priceless value is time; all the different eras, kingdoms, people and treatments that have contributed to what counts as their heritage today. The Ardabil Anthropology Museum is one these places to both the local people of Ardabil and the rest of Iranians. This historical complex whose original structure dates back to the pre-Safavid era (approximately before the year 1500) was initially built as a Bathhouse named Zahir-al-Islam. After multiple transformations, in 1999, the Cultural Heritage Organization of Iran repurposed and renamed the place into Ardabil Anthropology Museum.

To better understand the tourist value this place offers, it would be beneficial to familiarize ourselves with the Ardabil Province first. Ardabil, which is situated in the northwestern part of Iran, enjoys all the perks that a mountainous region could have. Cool, clean and refreshing weather, lakes, ski resorts and to top it off a number of historically significant locations as well. What is quite great about Ardabil Province is that, the tourist accommodations that would be required for a memorable and full experience are all in place. All of Ardabil tourist attractions could be easily enjoyed through a variety of Ardabil tours namely Ardabil day tours which are specifically designed to satisfy different types of visitors and their varying preferences. To name some of the Ardabil attractions one could mention Shorabil Lake, Sheik Safi Al-Din Shrine, Mount Sabalan Crater Lake, Shahar Yeri Historical Site, Alvares Ski Resort and of course our very own Ardabil Anthropology Museum. Staying in Ardabil Should not be a problem since a great number of different Ardabil hotels are ready to host the visitors. Back to the museum, which is located in Ali Qapu Square in Ardabil City, is pretty close to another one of Ardabil tourist attractions, Sheikh Safi Al-Din’s Shrine and you can kill two birds with one stone as visiting these two spectacular places would save you a lot of time and money. From the center of the Ardabil City, the museum should not be more than 3 km away and with a regular taxi it would cost you 3 dollars and the short trip would take 5 minutes. Finally, an illuminating fact about the significance of bathhouses in Ardabil in general and this museum in particular is that it corroborates the fact that the ancient people of Ardabil were rather keen and enthusiastic about their hygiene and that is why they had dedicated one day of the week – called Hamam Gooni in their local lingo – to attend these bathhouses. The authentic representation of the people by the mannequins, the historical documents and the fact that the place has been kept intact throughout the years are some of the reasons why the Ardabil Anthropology Museum has been one of the tourists’ favorite spots in Ardabil.
