The National Museum of Iran is one of the oldest museums dedicated to ancient culture. This modest museum represents Iran’s rich history. The interior includes a collection of ceramics, potteries, stone figures and carvings, mostly taken from excavations at Persepolis in Fars province, Khuzestan province, Tehran province and Golestan province. There are quite a few art craft from the site of Persepolis. As you see in this photo, the ancient objects from Persepolis include a magnificent human-headed capital. It is great to view these treasure before you actually visit that wonderful site.
