The management and design of this museum unfortunately is very poor. The staff must be trained. It was like coffee shop for some of their officials (ghahveh khaneh). Very dark, jewelry in this museum need to be better presented and the manager must resign if...More

A very decadent and boring display of jewels from the Persian monarchy. No English descriptions. Not recommended!

Not to be missed if you like treasures or jewellery. I had seen something similar only in the Tower of London. Some pieces are amazing, in particular the globe with the continents and seas in different colours of stones. The only cons is the lack...More

I should start with saying it’s probably one of the few museums in the whole world that you can not put a price tag on it, even in billions. There are so much diamonds and stones and pearl and gold enough to support a country’s...More
