Meshkin Fam Art Museum in Iran's Shiraz - Tourism news

The building occupies an area of about 1,100 m², and consists of the andaruni and birun sections, arranged around separate courtyards. In addition to the spaces common to traditional Shiraz houses, the building has a bath and a howz-khaneh.

After the mansion had been appropriated by the government, it was first designated as a school. Later, it became the museum. The majority of the museum's collection consists of the objects d'art produced or collected by the members of Meshkin Fam family.

Among them are masterfully-engraved stone items and calligraphy pieces created by Hajj Habib Meshkin Fam (1871-1941), paintings by his son Hasan Meshkin fam, and many artifacts produced by other renowned masters native to Shiraz. The exhibition is complemented by a photo gallery of Iranian celebrities, a library, and a graphic workshop.
