The 8 day cultural trip to Iran - "Iranian Treasures" - (Day 6 afternoon) - Na'in, Kavir Ethnology Museum - The 21st of September 2014

The Ethnographic  Museum is housed in a beautiful  traditional  Safavid house of 1560 on which we were welcomed by the guardian, who led us into a first courtyard where we came across a few interesting archival material  from old marriage contracts to metalwork and ceramic objects overlooked by a particularly beautiful domed ceiling.
The walls were covered in old photographs depicting the weaving process sequencing.

Upon having walked up onto the first floor there were several rooms around a courtyard, one of which displayed what life must have been in the past using life-size dolls. The other two richly decorated rooms were left for last, as not all of us could photograph them at the same time.

I walked down into the garden courtyard surrounded by various rooms where one could see artefacts related to life in a desert like area.
