A Haven of Cultural Splendor in Elahieh

Nestled in the charming Elahieh Area, the Iranian Art Museum Garden beckons visitors with its exquisite collection of maquettes showcasing historical monuments from Iran’s rich heritage. Spanning an area of less than one hectare, this semi-public green space and art gallery complex offers a serene retreat where nature and art intertwine harmoniously.

A Glimpse into History

Step into the Iranian Art Museum Garden and be transported through time as you encounter meticulously crafted maquettes of iconic Iranian landmarks. Admire scaled replicas of architectural marvels such as Hasht Behesht, Chehel Sotoun, Gonbad-e Ghabus, Shamsolemareh, the thirty-three Bridges of Isfahan, Mahyar Caravansary, the Building of Fin Garden in Kashan, Azadi Tower, Milad Tower, the Tomb of Danial, the Soltanieh Dome, and the St. Thaddeus Monastery. These stunning maquettes were commissioned by the Pahlavi King in preparation for the grand celebration of the “2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.”

From Private Residence to Artistic Haven

Originally built in 1931 as a private residence belonging to Lieutenant General Ahmad Amir Ahmadi and his wife, Turan Mohajer Eslami, the main building of the museum underwent extensive repairs in 2005, culminating in its transformation into the Iranian Art Museum Garden in the winter of 2006. This metamorphosis breathed new life into the space, allowing it to serve as a testament to Iran’s rich cultural heritage and a platform for artistic expression.
