Carpet Museum Of Iran

 

Just north of the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Carpet Museum houses more than 100 pieces dating from the 17th century to the present day. It’s a great place to see the full range of regional patterns and styles found in Iran, plus a few unique carpets such as the Tree of Life with Kings and Notables. The permanent collection is downstairs while upstairs is for temporary exhibitions.The museum itself was designed by Farah Diba and mixes classic ‘70s style with carpet-inspired function – the exterior is meant to resemble threads on a loom, which cool down the main building by casting shadows on its walls.
