The two ladies with the percussion instruments fascinated me especially. Afterwards, one of the musicians led us through the exhibition rooms and explained the variety of instruments as all possible regions and centuries.
This a lovely museum of traditional Iranian instruments. They have a great collection and they also play for you which is amazing. Staff are very friendly and clearly enthusiastic about what they do. Whether you're a musician or not, you'll appreciate the experience.
Excellent professional guided tour of museum plus a perfect Persian music audition. Highly recommended.
