Simin & Jalal Museum House
There is a beautiful house in an impasse on Dezashib Street in the north of Tehran, which was previously inhabited by the great figures of contemporary Iranian literature, and after many years, their works are still published. Simin Daneshvar and his husband Jalal Al-Ahmad are two Iranian writers and translators who have left many works and have created a new way in the history of Persian literature.
The Jalal and Simin House Museum is actually this couple’s personal home, built by Jalal Al-Ahmad while his wife Simin was studying aesthetics at Stanford University. The construction of this house itself has a story that has become one of the factors that make this museum attractive.
Jalal himself was directly involved in the construction of the house. In letters he sent to his wife, he described the pain in his hands as he carved stones. What is clear in each brick of this house is that this house was built with love. The decoration of this house is still the same as when its original owners lived there.
Another attraction of this museum is that the decoration of this house is still the same as when its original owners lived there. Also, in this museum house, all the works written and translated by these two authors are collected.
