Must see to find out everything about the water system in the yazd area. As everyone can see, the city is prospering even by being far from water resources, so here in this museum you can learn why...

Very interesting visit about how locals were dealing with water shortage for centuries (qanat network capting water from the mountains feet). You can even ask the staff to organize a visit some still active qanat!!
