One of the largest cities of modern Iran, Isfahan is situated 340 kilometers south of Tehran. Today, Isfahan is most famous for its Islamic monuments and Naqsh-i Jahan Square. The squeezes in the F|S collection are from the façade of Imamzadeh Ismail Mausoleum in the former Jewish quarter, and from the façade of a small tomb in the large Mosque of the Shah (Masjed-e Shah) on the southern side of the Naqsh-i Jahan Square, constructed in the seventeenth century.

As renovation work continues in the Freer Gallery, the Sackler Gallery also will close on July 10, 2017. This museum-wide closure will allow us to completely reinstall our exhibitions and revitalize features to improve your visit. Both spaces will reopen on October 14, 2017, when we will welcome the public back to the Freer|Sackler: two galleries, one destination. For your safety, all visitors will have their bags checked. See the complete list of restricted items and bag sizes.
