Museum of Time
A fabulous collection of clocks and watches are gathered together here. It is a really interesting museum especially when you confront the ancient clocks. They function totally different in comparison with normal clocks that we know today.
Time Museum has collected almost every clock since the old times and has put them on public display. It is the only museum in Iran that has such specifications. The building of Time Museum is about 80 years old. However, an aesthetician called Hossein Khodadad bought the building of this museum in 1967. As he was deeply devoted to artworks, he decided to change this building into a museum. The many architectural improvements since then have fully completed the perfection of this museum.
The building of Time Museum stands proudly in the middle of a 5-hectare garden. There are some maquettes of the old clocks in the garden that people can closely investigate how they used to function. These clocks contain sundial clocks, water clocks, hourglass, and the like. The museum itself displays all kinds of clocks since the 17th century. The first floor is particularly designated for mechanical, pendulum, torsion, ships clock, and other kinds of clocks. The external appearance of these clocks clearly shows that our ancestors did care about their decorations. In addition, different calendars since old times are also collected. Furthermore, there are watches and pocket clocks on the second floor of this museum. There is also a café outside in the garden that offers tasty drinks and snacks or breakfasts.
