Museums run by Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization charged no admission on Thursday to commemorate World Museum Day, prompting thousands of people to pay a visit to the city’s numerous museums.

World Museum Day has been celebrated globally every year on May 18 since 1977.

In Iran, it marks the beginning of National Cultural Heritage Week, which ends on May 24.

Official events are organized during the week to highlight the importance of museums and cultural heritage sites.

The following photos retrieved from IRNA show people visiting the National Museum of Iran, the Science and Technology Museum, the Islamic Era Museum and Moqaddam Museum.
