Overview

Located on the corner of Karegar and Fatemi Streets in Tehran, the Carpet Museum of Iran is home to almost 150 astonishing carpets dating from the 16th century to the present day. The carpets are from different regions of Iran and exhibit different patterns and motifs woven in these areas. Some of these regions are Kashan, Isfahan, Kurdistan, Tabriz, Tehran, Mashhad and Kerman. The hall on the first floor is the permanent exhibition of the carpets, and the one on the second floor is sometimes used to hold temporary exhibitions displaying new handmade carpets, kilims, etc. The exterior design of the museum resembles a number of carpet looms surrounding the building. Carpet museum was built in 1978 by Abdol-Aziz Mirza Farmanfarmaian.
