Gilan Rural Heritage Museum E-Ticket


The rural museums are a subset of open air museum reflecting the rural civilization and culture in a natural environment. These museums form through transferring the real scale buildings in a location similar to the primary place.

Guilan Rural Heritage Museum is under construction in a 263 ha land, in Saravan forest park located on km 18 of Rasht- Tehran road. The idea of establishing the museum was formed after June 1991 Guilan earthquake in which the destruction of the traditional buildings was intensified. The primary phase of the project was completed in Spring 2002.


The replica village has been divided into nine zones, each depicting one region and the architectural construction typical of the area.

The different zones aim respectively to depict village life and architecture typical of the Gilan planes, mountains, highlands and coast; each village distinct, and different in response to the different terrain.

To ensure the heritage museum preserved a true and accurate record of the villages and village life, a group of experts were sent to the various regions to identify representative buildings. Buildings still standing in each area were selected from anthropological and architectural points of view, then disassembled, transferred to Saravan Forest Park, and again reassembled.


Set across 45 hectares of land, the Gilan Rural Heritage Museum site includes restaurants, tea-houses, a children’s recreational area, a camp site, markets, tea farms, rice fields, a square for local games and sports, a botanic garden, as well as a research center dedicated to the study of local agriculture techniques, animal husbandry, architecture, and anthropology.

The site also features handicrafts workshops teaching local crafts of pottery, mat weaving, and sewing.
