A judge house turns into a museum
Mar 2019
This house used to be a judge house and office (two main sections; internal area and external area) and now, it serves as a museum in which we can distinguish four sections; prehistoric section, Ancient Iran section (the objects date back from beginning of history to arrival of Islam; most of the objects excavated and discovered in Kurdistan), a section holds objects date back to Islamic period of Iran (mostly pottery objects), and a section dedicated to contemporary period or provisional section that is located at the basement.
Its window, Oroosi work on the main window is most noticeable part of the house that made of more than 42000 pieces of glass and wood in which not any type of glue or nails has been used in it.

Sanandaj also called "Senna" is a city in the Kurdistan Province of Iran. Sanandaj occupies a fertile valley in the Zagros Mountains. The city is a major manufacturing and retail trade center with many different products, including carpets, cotton textiles, leather, metal ware, cutlery, pottery, wood furniture and wood crafts, milled rice, refined sugar, and processed foods. Its old bazaar is noted as a place to buy Kurdish handicrafts.

Sanandaj is home to the ruins of an 11th- and 12th- century fortress, the Dar al-Ehsan Mosque, and the Sanandaj Museum. The museum is housed in a 19th-century royal palace whose Arusi Room, or Wedding Room is considered a masterpiece of handcrafted woodwork. Kurdistan University, founded after the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran, is also in the city.

The area around Sanandaj is known for its many mountain caves, hot springs, and freshwater lakes, many of which cater to tourists. The nature around Sanandaj is lovely.

history, art and photo

It is one of the most beautiful museums in Iran as it has a variety of antiques and contemporary arts which are colorful. you can take so many fabulous pictures as its decoration is unique. you can easily spend two hours watching this museum. if you go there at noon, it may be closed but there is always a soldier who protects there that you can tell him.
its surrounding area with the museum background would be a nice picture. there are also restrooms if you need.

Well, I should say that it was a very simple museum which was not attractive enough for me, but the house was wonderful with those colourful windows

Sanandaj Museum
Apr 2018 • Couples
The Salar Saeed mansion, which includes the Sanandaj Museum, is considered to be the historical monuments of Sanandaj, which is located on Imam Street, Habibi Alley and in the exterior of Mullah Lotfollahi Shah al-Islam. The construction of the Sanandaj Museum is actually the house of Salar Sa'id Sanandaj, which was co-ordinated with the rule of Naser-al-Din Shah Qajar about 150 years ago by a Sunni scholar in two parts of the courtyard and building on Imam Khomeini Street, and later became a museum in 1354.

Great museum
Sep 2017 • Friends
This was quite an interesting museum, once it opened (seems like its opening and closing times are somewhat flexible). Anyway, we basically we had the museum to ourself as we wandered around and explored the exhibits. Beautiful architecture in the construction of the museum itself, and very interesting displays. Very well set out and easy to follow the chronological history of the exhibits. A worthwhile visit.
