Mr. JIm mcIntosh from NewZeland, first recipient of the book outside of Iran.

All around the world museums are one of the most interesting places for tourists. However, there are so many different museums to visit with so many different objects in the museums that tourist never have enough time to waiting, look, read and save the informations and take photos. Some of the areas in the museums are missed or even forgotten to be looked at.

With museum tours, the tour guides tend to skip around to different areas or tend to rush to provide all the visitors with a small tour. They also want to make sure all the museums are visited before time runs out.

However, having a pictorial book of the museums with information on the items of museum can make your trip more enjoyable.  You can also share a part of Iran’s history with beautiful photos of monuments and natural sites. If you ever want to go back and revisit your trip, all you have to do is open the book and see the wonderful places you have visited.
