Good trip inside to know more about the work around of US Embassy and the history of the Iranian students crashing in to the Embassy. Go if you are a history buff.

The famous graffiti outside the former embassy is cool for sure, but it’s even cooler to actually go inside the embassy where the historical event took place. They preserve the offices,documents and photos very well that visitors can understand more about the history. It’s really...More

It's not a building that can be close or open... It's a wall placed in the street side. easy to see in every hour of every day or night. unlimited. It's a kind of advertising.
