Lorestan Province Needs Ten Museums


News Category: Cultural

 16 November 2005



Director General of Lorestan Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department has called for setting up more museums in the province.

Sirous Ebrahimi said that Lorestan should have an exclusive museum to house and display its 7,000 historical objects which have not yet been showcased, said a report in Parseh Weekly, a mouthpiece of Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization.

Meanwhile, an expert at the provincial Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department said that given the diversity of artifacts, Lorestan has the capacity for ten museums instead of the existing one.

Amir Reza Farahbod said that unfortunately, Falak ol-Aflak Museum is currently the sole site for displaying the artifacts.

“It cannot meet the needs of a province which is home to more than 6,000 valuable artifacts,“ he complained.

Once necessary funds are available, two other museums will be established within three years, he noted.

Museums expose the thoughts and ideas of men from different eras of history, he observed.
Archeological and anthropological museums will be set up in Kouhdasht, Aligoudarz, Nourabad and Boroujerd in the coming years, he concluded.
