Saba Museum

The late blessed Abolhassan Saba

In 1957, when Saba deceased, Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi ordered to make his house with all his works, things and instruments as a permanent museum. In Nov. 1974, Ali Akbar Shahbazi inaugurated Saba Museum. It was opened to public in 1983.

There are now two collections of instruments in Iran - in the SABA Museum and belonging to the Organization of Cultural Heritage -.
Unfortunately there is no special museum of musical instruments.
