This structure, which bears close resemblance to those of "Qajar" period, was originally built as the residence of "Molla Lotfollah Sheikholeslam", one of the spiritual leaders of "Qajar" era.

After his death, it was bought by "Salar Said Sanandaji", and later handed over to Ministry of Culture and Art, being transformed into a museum in 1967.

It was closed in 1980, because of war; and reopened for public visit in March 1990.

It consists of a basement and a ground floor. Archeological items are exhibited in basement and ethnological materials are on show on the ground floor.
