Text description provided by the architects. The existing buildings which used to be frightening prisons, which can be followed in imprisonments memories, are now calming, relaxing and beautiful galleries, libraries, amphitheatre, cafes and restaurants which not only attract local citizens but also people from every part of the city; consequently the quality of the neighborhood has increased. The gate of the prison after the conservation has changed to the official section as well.

After the public opening of the collection, it encountered with a stunning reception by the people. Statistics obtained during a period of 12 days (holidays this year) to visit the museum was 125,000 and 6,000 people in one day. Regarding to the exploitation of Tehran’s cultural spaces, it seems that this place won’t confront a serious limitation on the amount of visitors. So, these kinds of investments on saving historic sites seem also reasonable in nationally scale.
