Carpet Museum of Iran; Such a Variety!

If you think a carpet is just a carpet, then be surprised by the variety of carpets you get to see there. 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. Some carpets are even related to the famous Shahnameh stories (Persian Literature). For each carpet an English sign shows where it is from and when it was made. Unfortunately the more detailed descriptions about the carpets are all in Farsi. There is also an upstairs section that holds temporary exhibitions as well as a library with about 7.000 books about carpets!
