The museum was designed by the last queen of Iran, Farah Diba Pahlavi, mixes classic 70s styles with carpet-inspired function.  The carpet museum of Iran, with its beautiful architecture and façade resembling a carpet-weaving loom composed two exhibition galleries: the ground floor gallery is assigned for permanent exhibitions and the upper floor gallery is considered for the temporary exhibitions of carpets, kilims and carpet designs.

The museum's exhibition hall occupies 3,400 square meters and its library contains 7000 books. 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.

Carpet-weaving is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished manifestations of Iranian culture and art, dating back to the Bronze Age.
