The objects exhibited in this museum, which is also called Abgineh Museum, belong to a span of time beginning from pre-Islam period up to the contemporary Iran.
On the first floor, at the beginning of the visit to the museum, there is a hall with a showcase in the ground at the entrance to draw visitors’ attention to a symbolic location of archaeological site under excavation. On the walls, there can be seen maps and ancient regions on the Iranian plateau as well as a very useful timetable of ancient civilizations.
