We travelled with two archeologists and they were in heaven! This place was beautifully presented and contained some beautiful artefacts of their long history.The map of Persia was of great interest to me. A fantastic place to visit.

As a non museum person, this museum has an excellent collection of artifacts from pre Islamic to 19th century. Not a huge selection but beautifully selected. Enough to introduce you to the different stages or history.
