Its about the history of the water management and how they managed to gain access to water for the city of Yazd. Its very informative but a bit expensive for the ticket entry is 150.000rial per person. Not that important to visit if your not that interested in water management system.

The museum is quite good as far as giving thorough information about how the local people ingeniously use the underground water system to provide cooling rooms amidst the hot desert environment. However, you can quite readily get this information from the Internet.

When one realise how things works, how long ago it was invented... one can feel the "magic". However... it may be boring for non-technical people. For those interested... More

The entire practice of Qanats is brilliant and very precisely executed. This way they all have free access to clean water which could be coming from hundreds of kilometers away. The museum explained any questions we have had.

The house itself had two running Qanats which unfortunately not flowing... More

At first it looks like an ordinary old building but when you go downstairs to the underground level you realise how wonderfully this building has been built! This place is definitely a must see place. It is so cool and comfortable too specially during hot summers of Yaz.

I personally think Yazd is a great place to visit. The water museum had the history of using water for many years. If you love history of Middle East , you really going to enjoy this, it's nice to see it for at least one time.
