The museum's exhibition hall occupies 3,400 square metres (37,000 sq ft)[citation needed] and its library contains approximately 7,000 books.[1]

The museum was designed by architect Abdol-Aziz Mirza Farmanfarmaian. The perforated structure around the museum's exterior is designed both to resemble a carpet loom, and to cast shade on the exterior walls, reducing the impact of the hot summer sun on the interior temperature.
