    Located in Tehran, beside Laleh Park, and founded in 1976, the Carpet Museum of Iran exhibits a variety of Persian carpets from all over Iran, dating from 18th century to present.

    The museum''s exhibition hall occupies 3,400 square meters (10,200 ft²) and its library contains 7,000 books.

    The museum was designed by the last Queen of Iran, Farah Diba Pahlavi. The perforated structure around the museum''s exterior is designed both to resemble a carpet loom, and to cast shade on the exterior walls, reducing the impact of the hot summer sun on the interior temperature.
