One of the oldest full body prince of ancient times of Iran is kept in this museum. If can be a good and enough reason for visiting this place aside from all of the other amazing historical collections. I recommend it!

A place to learn and enjoy. Actually they don’t let people to take pictures from saltmen but they are historical. Like something that lost in history, something that lost in a history full of incredible stories and facts. Anyway, I really suggest there.

We visited as a couple and had the best time. The place is located in the heart of zanjan. All the descriptions are attached to the artifacts. I recommend visiting it. The mummies are a bit creepy but worth taking a look.
