The exhibit that will run through February 10 features 550 historical relics. However, according to museum head Jebrael Nokandeh, it may be extended to February 18, ISNA reported.

The fourth group comprises 21 relics that Italy seized from smugglers and returned to Iran. They date back to between 3,000 BC and the Islamic period.
