They say the best of Iran is in museums in other countries. They have a few choice pieces left but for 3000 years it's less than they deserve to have. There's 2 floors and about 90 mins needed to see everything.

Visiting the national museum gives a good overview of Iranian history and helps put the historic buildings and monuments visited in perspective. The highlights for me were the painted pottery from the Elam period and the finds from Persepolis.
