The National Museum of Iran, as the largest, most important, and oldest museum in the country, has exhibited most of the archaeological findings from the Paleolithic to Islamic archaeological excavations in the form of two museums of "Ancient Iran" and "Iranian Archeology and Islamic Art". The National Museum of Iran opened in the first solar year in the country's first museum building. The building was designed by French architect Andre Godard, inspired by the Kasra arch. The "Museum of Ancient Iran" includes two museums of "Prehistory of Iran" with artifacts from ancient Paleolithic to the late fourth millennium BC (from the earliest to the earliest writing) and the "Museum of Historical Times" from the late fourth millennium BC (ie the beginning). Implementation of writing) has been on display until the end of the Sassanid era. Museum of Archeology and Islamic Art of Iran The Museum of Archeology and Islamic Art of Iran, based on a plan inspired by the Sassanid Bishabour palace, was constructed as an octagonal crucifix, with an area of about 2 square meters and three floors. The current museum includes the Halls of Islam, Seljuk and Ilkhani, Quran, Timurid, Safavid, Afshar, Zand and Qajar. Most of the objects in this museum are a selection of works from scientific excavations or prestigious collections such as the doorstep of Sheikh Sufi Ardebili. Professor Patrick Ringenberg
