Carpet Museum of Iran
Right beside the Museum of Contemporary Art is situated the magical Carpet Museum in the serene atmosphere of Laleh Park. Patterns and styles of knots in Persian carpets have been a major part of their culture and lifestyle for about 2500 years; so it would be really amazing to have an odyssey in the history of these people and their hand-woven heritages. Each pattern woven in every single carpet tells you its own story of a lifetime in different cities of Iran like Kerman, Shiraz, Isfahan, Kashan, or Tabriz. You get to see masterpieces like the Tree of Life carpet, the most delicate hand-woven carpets and rugs belonging to the 9th century, or the more complicated patterns belonging to the contemporaries.
