In North of Tehran, there is the Iran wildlife & Nature Museum (Darabad). In my opinion, it’s really good. pleasant weather especially in spring and the wonderful things to see, the ticket price for entry is 4000 Toman.
There are 4 places(hall) :
- The main hall include (Iranian animal, Reptiles & fishes, Stone, Foreign animal)
- Butterfly hall
- Iranian plants hall
- Taxidermy hall
- And the restaurant, cafe
- Human hall
Above I said 4 halls but wrote 5 halls, latter row is about in our body and ticket price for entry to this hall is 30000 Toman.
The main hall was my interesting hall because there are animals, which lived in Iran, of course, now is live but some animal was extinct such as Mazandaran Leopard.
About Reptiles & fishes. after foreign animals hall. there is this hall include Snakes(Poisonous, non-toxic), Fishes, Lizards.
Then on the first floor. there is a hall about the stones in Iran’s mountains. in Iranian plants hall. you can see several kinds of Iranian plants which there are in sample dried. also, there is a good smell because this hall is full of flowers.
Taxidermy is the preserving of an animal’s body via stuffing or mounting for the purpose of display or study. this hall show how we can save the body of the animal when they die.
I love butterfly hall. butterfly hall is fantastic because you can see the beautiful butterfly, which there are in all over the world from America, Africa, Europ, and Asia. the interesting thing about butterfly is if insert the needle into the third chine of the body of the butterfly, it gets crippled.
In the photos below, you can see pictures of these halls.
