World’s First Cave Museum to be Built in Iran

 

14 June 2004

 

 

The first ever cave museum in the globe is to be built in the 12,000-year-old cave of Huto in a joint venture by Iranian and French experts.


The cave is located near Behshahr, in the northern Mazandaran province and archaeologists have found evidence of people living there during the Ice Age. “French cave museum expert Marie Chanetalle Souteau has visited the cave for a preliminary study.

 

Based on the pilot plan, we are going to build an exhibition hall in there to showcase primitive tools and other artifacts discovered in this pre-historic cave,” said Soheila Rajaei, director of Mazandaran’s Cultural Heritage Organization (CHO).


She argued that the main reason to construct such a cave museum was revival and maintenance of pre-historic relics, further adding archaeological studies to incorporate another nearby cave, Kamarband, in the project would start as soon as they get the funds.
