  Quiet contemplation of the past
by TheWanderingCamel

If you want to see all the National Museum has to offer, you really should aim to visit it twice. Like all the world's great museums, there is so much to see and absorb, one visit just does not give you time to do it justice. The millenia of Persian history and culture are all represented here in a stunning array of artifacts and major treasures. Pre-historic items give way to the ceramics bronzes, gold and terracotta figures of the Achemanian and Sassanian periods. Huge reliefs and columns topped with double-headed beasts from Persepolis are on display along with coins, jewellery and other small, domestic items.

The museum is open every day except Tuesday from 0900-1200 and 1300-1600
