Iranian art garden-museum is a wonderful tourist attraction located in Tehran, the capital city of Iran.
The main building was built in 1931 and belonged to Ahmad Amir-Ahmadi, the lieutenant of Reza Shah – the founder of the Pahlavi Dynasty. After Islamic Revolution, this garden was owned by House of Cinema and was turned into Iranian Art Museum-Garden in winter of 2006.
The Iranian Art Museum Garden owns many features such as art galleries and workshops, green area representing the Persian Gardens and a center for selling artifacts and cultural goods. However, this museum is mostly known for its attractive maquettes (scaled models) of some spectacular monuments in Iran. These maquettes were built by Italian artists upon the order of Pahlavi King while he was planning to celebrate the 2500 years of kingdom in Iran.
