Gilan Rural Heritage Museum

Every day thousands of people leave their houses for a new destination across the globe. Some of these travels are to fulfill obligations, be it business, family or else. But there is another group with a different attitude and motive who venture to expand their horizons. For them, studying a new culture, region and its people is as fun as it is life-changing. In Iran, the unique culture of the rural people of the north has always been of interest to both local and foreign anthropologists. The Gilan Province which hosts a lot of culturally significant villages has made a great effort to preserve and display the singular rustic culture and traditions of its people, and that is best exhibited through the establishment of the Gilan Rural Heritage Museum in 2002.

In terms of accommodations and the diversity of the tourist attractions, there is no doubt that Gilan would arguably be a top proposition. While most of the foreign visitors who come to Iran, target the central provinces for their historical importance, most Iranians choose the northern coast as their travel destination for the holidays and weekends. This verdurous region provides the visitors with spectacular exotic locales in its forests, waterfalls, hills and beautiful coasts one could not help but appreciate and record. Some of Gilan tourist attractions include the Fandoqlu Forest, the Visadar Waterfall, Satan’s Hill and last but not least the Gilan Rural Heritage Museum. It is quite befitting for such a magnificent place to have special programs and resorts for the tourists to help them have the best time possible and experience the place to the fullest of its potential. Fortunately, such plans and programs are in full effect and ready to accommodate all types of visitors. Among these plans one could mention the diverse Gilan tours including Gilan trekking tours, Caspian Sea nature tours and Caspian Sea boat riding tours. But one of these tourist packages is unique in its proposal; Gilan Rural Heritage Museum. This museum is located inside the Jungle Park of Saravan near the City of Rasht. The elaborate tourist facility was designed to function as a live-action program representing the authentic architecture, traditions, costumes, cuisine and ultimately the lives of the people of rural Gilan. The cottages, the actors, and all the accommodations which have been set up inside this museum help preserve a lively, rich and attractive culture which would provide the visitors with first-hand experience of the rustic life in Gilan. The property is 45 hectares and is filled with houses some of which are 150 years old and are equipped with genuine handcraft tools as they would be used by the villagers. Also, some of the regions’ traditional rituals are enacted by skilled actors to portray the unique, intriguing and colorful aspects of their historical culture. Finally, other than participating in specific tour packages and programs that have listed it, to reach this wonderful museum which is situated 18 kilometers south of Rasht - the capital city of Gilan – you could take a taxi and a 6-dollar ride would get you there in under an hour.
