Museums in Tehran host events for children to encourage book reading

The Cultural Heritage and Tourism Research Center is to implement a “Seven Museums, Seven Tales” plan as of Saturday [November 15] to mark the national Book and Book Reading Week.

The plan which is to be carried out in seven museums in the capital aims to promote book reading and introduce [Iran’s] legends and myths as a symbol of oral and intangible heritage.

It also intends to create more attractiveness in museums and revive the art of storytelling.

Creative instructors of storytelling and members of Children’s Book Council will come together in seven museums, namely Iran’s Post Museum, National Museum of Iran, Golestan Palace Museum, Carpet Museum of Iran, Tehran Peace Museum, Moghadam Museum and Bagh-e-Negarestan [Complex] to host Iranian children and their parents as well as other guests between November 15 and 21.

The museums will open their doors to visitors at 11:00 a.m. local time.
