Golestan Palace, Tehran Reviews
One the most beautiful jewels of Tehran. A must visit attractions for both locals and visitors. Here are few pictures of my favourite palaces and location within the premise. Can't recommend this palace enough!!! Definitely check out the mirrors palace and brilliant palace💓
Great place to spend an entire day wondering around and learning about glorious history of Iran. It has fantastic collection of China gifted to shahs by various royalties. Also ethnographic museum is worth a visit to learn about various ethnic groups of Iran and their traditions. Some of the palace buildings are beautifully decorated with mirror mosaics that make entire place shine like in a dream.
Excellent place for a whole day entertainment.. there is much to see. They have also an excellent cafe-restaurant terrace in the lovely garden. It is also nearby a vast bazaar which is perfect to visit after the museum's closure #londonartandfood
This once must have been a beautiful palace in Iran, however I would not recommend this as a top sight to see in Iran. The staff are rude, and expect to pay an additional fee if you are a foreigner. Aside from general entry, each section of the museum requires an additional entrance fee. Many of the exhibition rooms are empty or poorly maintained. There is evidence that the architecture interiors and exteriors have undergone great renovation since the days of the revolution, and little of this has been done to a fair quality. None of the exhibits are presented to museum conservation standards and there are few artefacts of significance or interest - I suspect those of any interest have been looted, destroyed, or are now housed in other museums in Tehran. Though lacking most of the lustre of its once magnificent past, if you are really interested in visiting the palace, ensure you only pay general entrance to the grounds, plus entrance to one of the main mirror halls.
Most visit museum. Nice variety of art, buildings, and furnitures with lots of history collected in one place. Also it is close to Bazaar which is another good option to visit in Tehran.
