It is the combination of two buildings which include the Museum of Ancient Iran ("Muze ye Irān e Bāstān", a Sassanid brick revival building inaugurated in 1937), and the white travertine Museum of the Islamic Era ("Muze ye Dowrān e Eslāmi", inaugurated in 1972).

It hosts historical monuments dating back through preserved ancient and medieval Iranian antiquities. These works include pottery vessels, metal objects, textile remains, and some rare books and coins.<ref name="National Museum of Iran">", Iran's Tourism Guide"</ref>
