We went with a guide who was good with history and he explained the period of Iran's history and gave the context to the exhibits which made the visit very interesting. Another group of my friends when without a guide and they found it very boring. So I'd recommend looking for a guide

First of all, the building is master piece, inspired from Tagh-e Bostan architecture. There are articles from prehistory till Sasani dynasty, till Islam.
Object from Islamic era are kept in a separate building nearby.

Not really a museum person but we decided to get a snapshot of Arian/ Iranian history by viewing the artifacts in this museum. It was well laid out and recorded, we discovered the little knowledge we learned during this event contributed to our enjoyment days later.
