Art Museum Garden

The open-air museum is a rare place in north Tehran where visitors can take refuge from the daily hustle and bustle in the Tajrish neighborhood and see small replicas of famous monuments in Iran alongside modern sculptures.
Opened in 2005, Iranian Art Museum Garden features 12 replicas of historical sites from Isfahan’s Si-o-se Pol Bridge to Azadi Tower of Tehran. Other notable structures in replica include St. Thaddeus Monastery of Tabriz, Tomb of Daniel in Shush, Kashan’s Fin Garden, Shamsol Emareh edifice in Tehran and the world famous Chehel Sotoun Palace in Isfahan.
Conceptual sculptures placed around the garden are the winners of the International Sculpture Symposium in Tehran in 2006.  
Spread over less than a hectare, the garden is surrounded by tall old trees, water streams, and small ponds that create a pleasant ambience.
The small mansion in the garden, built in the Qajar era (1786-1925), has been turned into a gallery that hosts exhibitions.
Visitors can see photos of old Tehran hung on gallery walls and enjoy beverages at the garden café.
Small shops in the garden offer everything from books to handicraft and women’s accessories.
The museum is located at No 30, Dr. Hesabi St., Shahid Darbandi St., Tajrish Sq.
