This is a must see if you want to understand how Yazd could be a desert town for so long. Very interesting. Especially if you have someone to explain it all.

Nothing really special, but strongly connected to this place. Old style museum. The price was 150000 rials.

The museum is very well set out and maintained. Interesting explanation how water was brought to the city via underground tunnels, distributed to the inhabitants and used to drive a water wheel to grind grains. Toilets are also available.

If you are not around, I wouldn't really recommend to go there. It is not very interesting or informative, unless you are much into this topic.
