It's amazing to see this much jewellery in one place. There is three steps of security but I think it's just not enough for this much of treasure. this place is not actually a museum it's a treasury in heart of central bank. so despite of it's small place it's locate thousand of Iranian's treasure.

I have seen some collections of jewels around the world but this must rank with the most impressive. Diamonds of all colours and of huge size, rubies and emeralds fill showcases in great abundance. The security is impressive too, not even mobile phones are allowed in. A must see.

No photos were allowed and the security was very tight. The queues were long with a lot of waiting to get in. Once in the presentation of the jewels was very professional. I have never been impressed by the jewels of the super rich and this was thus not my favourite attraction in Tehran. I was with a group. Others... More

First of all be aware، children younger than 12 years old are not allowed to visit. You should pass four security process to get into huge safe box where the jewelries are keeping. Some of them are really nice. Good news there are guides on every corner tell you what is what.

I enjoy visiting this museum, in fact my Mexican penpal who was here went there and I was motivated too. This museum is part of Bank, so the rules was a little bit different, photography was forbidden. I really enjoyed watching the treasure, and it made me think about life of kings, ordinary people and what is art. I think... More

If your visit to Tehran lasts only a day, make sure you visit the national Jewelry treasury. The Shining and glorious objects represented from different kingdoms who ruled Iran will amaze you.

Make this a must see destination in your Tehran itinerary. The scale, the intricate beauty, the beauty, the incomparable value and the excellence of the display, all scream out for attention. The articles on display are from ancient times to the present day. Jewellery, scabbards, daggers, belts, crowns, head dresses, tiaras once worn by the rich and the famous. Imagine... More
