The Jahan nama museum is located in a south-west corner of the garden of Niāvarān and on the west side of the Sāheb Qarānyeh palace, in the cultural-historical Niāvarān complex.
Jahān namā is the most complete name given for the exhibition of works donated to the rulers Pahlavi or purchased by them and is divided into two parts, prehistoric art and works of contemporary visual arts in Iran and the world.

These works present a great variety and belong to different cultures of the world, ranging from a historical object with an antiquity of 3000 years to works by artists such as: Picasso, Dalì, Renoir, Gauguin, Barak, who in the history of art Modern World have left a profound influence or works of Iranian artists endowed with a style just like Parviz Tanāvali, Hossein Zende Rudi, Sohrāb Sepehri, Bahman Mohasses that here have all been reunited.

The terracotta pitcher dating back to the second half of the first millennium BC coming from Amlash, Gilān, the hard bronze statues of Lorestān relating to the second and first millennia BC, the "Standing Statue of Man" still in hard bronze by Alberto Giacometti, the head of the Buddha of the second century AD and works of "pre-Columbian" ritual arts and of the civilizations of ancient Egypt, Vicus and Mochica of Peru, demonstrate a tangible link in the idealism of the handmade creations of humanity, from the abysses of history until today, all this has been exposed as if a single soul in different hands and in different epochs had transferred its enthusiasm into images or had realized and crystallized it.

In fact, in this small space a world is exposed in which we can clearly see the complete series and the evolution of the feeling of humanity and the observer recognizes himself in the reflection of the transparent windows of the museum.

In one section the gallery jahān namā has hosted exhibitions to present works by contemporary artists and young people as well as national and traditional arts of the country.
