Moghadam Museum

Tehran, Imam Khomeini Street, 2013/9/4

Tehran University’s Moghadam Museum, or the house of Moghadam, is considered one of luxury home of Qajar era which belonged to Mohammad Taghi Khan Ehtesabolmolk, a courtier.

Ehtesabolmolk had two sons, Hassan and Mohsen, who went to Europe to continue their studies. Hassan who was active in literature, political and social circles, died at a young age. One of the most famous works remaining from him is “Jafar Khan returns from abroad.”

Mohsen, the younger brother, finished his studies in the fields of painting, art history and archaeology in 1315. He returned home with his French wife, “Selma” and to reside in his father’s house. Mohsen and his wife, aside from being involved in cultural activities, spent time collecting historical and cultural artifacts.

In 1972, Professor Mohsen Moghadam, donated his house to Tehran university where he had been teaching. Mohsen Moghaddam passed away in 1987 followed by his wife in 1990.

Starting with the first phase in 2004, Tehran University converted Moghadam’s house to a museum where the Moghadam’s magnificent collections are on display.
