Moshkin Fam Art Museum
The recently-founded museum occupies one of the late-Qajar mansions of Shiraz. The house is called after Foruq, a member of the powerful Qavam family. The building occupies an area of about 1,100 sq. m. and consists of the inner and outer sections, arranged around separate courtyards. In addition to the spaces common to traditional Shiraz houses, the building has a bath and a howz-khaneh.
After the mansion had been appropriated by the government, it was first designated as a school. Later, it became a museum. The majority of the museum's collection consists of the objects d'art produced or collected by the members of the Moshkin Fam family. Among them are masterfully-engraved stone items and calligraphy pieces created by Hajj Habib Moshkin Fam (1871-1941), paintings by his son Hasan Moshkin Fam, and many artifacts produced by other renowned masters native to Shiraz. The exhibition is complemented by a photo gallery of Iranian celebrities, a library, and a graphic workshop.
