The museum explains how they brought water into the villages. Yazd is supposed to have the oldest and longest underground canal in Iran. Not the best museum in the world but still quite interesting.

As someone who lived in California for 25 years, I found the imaginative way Persians dealt with transporting water in this dry part of the country fascinating. Definitely worth a short visit if you're in town.

The importance of water distribution in and around Yazd is detailed and clearly understandable in this place. Easy to find. Easy to visit and to expand to all places of Yazd: it is the perfect starter of a tour in the rich old city.

There is much to see at this museum, particularly the ingenuity of the Persians who built these canal systems, storages and piping Such a precious commodity in the arid conditions prevailing, needed innovative solutions. The state of the civilization itself was dependent on their providing such brilliant solutions. Each aspect of conveyance, storage, delivery is a wonder in itself.

Due to the dry climate of Yazd, water has very important and strategic role as potable usages as well as agriculture. There are a series of water related tools, documents and innovations all together. Moreover the building and the place is gorgeous and absolutely worth to see

Nice small museum, maybe not a must unless you are a water engineer, but interesting none the less to learn something about how water is extracted in the desert. Small passageways mean a tight squeeze during the crowded nawruz season.

The museum is about how to maintain water and food and water extracted from the earth in past centuries in Iran. Visit this interesting museum is highly recommended

Its about the history of the water management and how they managed to gain access to water for the city of Yazd. Its very informative but a bit expensive for the ticket entry is 150.000rial per person. Not that important to visit if your not that interested in water management system.
