Museum of Arms of the Court

Museum of Arms of the Court

The court weapons museum is located north of the Sa'd Ābād historical-cultural complex, and its building before the Islamic revolution was used by the brother of the Shāh.
This museum contains over 110 firearms of the hunting, war, belt type and their accessories that belonged to the second Pahlavi and his court.
Some of the weapons in this collection are gifts from important political and military figures from other countries to Mohammad Rezā Pahlavi.
The weapons in this collection are made in Iran and in European and American countries, one of which is unique: it is a muzzle-loading rifle with a flint-like barrel that dates back to the seventeenth century and was produced in India. This weapon is displayed in the basement of the museum next to two other muzzle-loading rifles, with some flasks carrying gunpowder and an old gun belonging to the qajaro period.
The basement is a completely separate part of the main building whose particular architecture and historical setting is of interest to visitors.
In the museum of the court weapons there are also some interesting historical photographs belonging to the qajaro and pahlavi periods related to the museum theme.
