Qazvin Museum is one of the most important museums in the city which is divided into several parts and there are different types of dishes and many paintings. Most of the objects in this museum are pottery and bronze, some of which date back to the first millennium and the third millennium BC. Walking through this museum and looking at the objects in it will definitely excite you, especially seeing the museum's most valuable object, a metal plate with Sassanid engravings and paintings believed to belong Khosrow Parviz II. In addition to several thousand-year-old objects in the museum, there are objects that belong to the Islamic and contemporary era. Other noteworthy objects in the museum that will surely catch your eyes are paintings by Nasser al-Din Shah Qajar that we suggest you to visit. Another attraction of the museum is the first Iranian-made weapons.
This museum belongs to Qazvin, but not all of the objects in Qazvin belong to it. For example, there is a 5,000-year-old figure in the museum, owned by a Sumerian man, for the city of Khark.
