Mohsen Moqadam was one of the fist Iranian archaeologists who worked with great specialists of this field at several historical sites. He was the founder of Fine Art College and taught at Tehran university. Together with his French wife, they decide to dedicate their lives to set up a museum of all the valuable objects on the verge of demolition. The couple living in Moqadam’s building decided never to have children and instead consider the historical objects in their house as their children which they should look after and leave for the next generations.
The house now mentioned as Moqadam’s Museum was one of the luxurious houses of the Qajar period and has the two normally found sections in the old Iranian houses called biriouni and andarouni . Along with all the other splendid constituent parts of this majestic house, we can also see exculsively valuable golden tiles which in order to be preserved, Moqadam had installed them in a suitable place in the walls. Some of these tiles are absolutely unique in the world.
