One of the most important archaeological museums in Iran, it’s located in the middle of a garden next to Susa Castle and Tomb of Daniel. Archaeological findings from excavations in Susa and Chogha Zanbil ancient sites are displayed in 6 galleries in this museum. They are mostly dated within a range from pre-Elmaite to post-Islamic eras.
Opened in 1966, with 550 sq.m floorplans, it’s built for displaying findings from archaeological excavations in Susa and Chogha Zanbil. One of the most interesting parts of the museum is a restored part of Apadana Palace, which remained from the Achaemenid Darius era and is known because of its colorful glazed tiles. Most of the excavated items have been exported overseas by the French archeologist in the 19th century and many are displayed in Louvre.
