National Museum of Iran to be Closed for Renovation

 

05 June 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- The National Museum of Iran (NMI) formerly Iran Bâstân Museum (Ancient Iran Museum) in central Tehran will be closed in February 2007 to undergo renovation, the Persian service of CHN reported on Monday.

 

Part of the artifacts will be transferred to the storeroom and the unique items will be put on display at the temporary exhibit hall of the museum.

 

Part of the Post-Sasanid era section of the museum has been dedicated to the temporary exhibit hall, which is undergoing renovation, said the curator of the museum, who expressed hope the hall will be ready by the end of autumn.

 

Mohammadreza Kargar added, “After the renovation, the unique artifacts will be transferred to the section and the general public will visit a part of the renovated museum.

 

“The hall will be renovated according to the latest architectural techniques and will be equipped with modern ventilation and lighting systems.”

 

He added the Seismology Research Center and the Italian University of Reggio Calabria are to offer a joint project on building a quake-resistant structure. 

 

The Iranian National Museum, is not only the greatest archaeological and historical museum of Iran, but also is one of the few greatest museums of the world in terms of quantity, quality and variety of the object in display.


In 1929 the relevant preparation of plans, designs and construction work were assigned to the French archaeologist and architecture André Godard. The outlined plan proposed that the architectural style of the museum building should correspond to themes of the items to be displayed and also should be in harmony with Iranian history. So the façade and entrance portico were built according to the style of the Arch of Emperor Chosroe's palace at Ctesiphon, 80 kilometres south of Baghdad, in what is today known as Iraq. The construction was completed in 1937.
