Cinema Museum of Iran.

Cinema Museum of Iran, established in 1994, is one of the most interesting museums of Tehran, even for the ones who are not very interested in cinema and don’t know much about Iranian cinema. This museum, known as a hangout for cinema lovers and the students of cinema, is set up in a glorious mansion located in the middle of a lush garden named Ferdows.
