The idea of the Film Museum Of Iran was seriously put forward in August 1994 . The task of gathering documents , picture , equipment and other remaining manifestations and memorabilia of Iranian cinema started when an old building in down town Tehran was put at the disposal of the museum , the gathering of such a collection , whose variety extent at times amazed even the original founders and staff of the museum , was a hard , long and tortuous procedure .
while some people welcome the idea and generously made available to the museum their archives and memorabilia , there were other from whom the museum staff had to receive historical items by sheer perseverance and even the support of influential people .
the enthusiasm and motivation generated by the large collection of memorabilia of the Iranian cinema , produced a hopeful and optimistic attitude and led to the creation of the museum much earlier than had been anticipated .
the first stage at the museum was officially inaugurated in the presence of the vice – president at the previous head quarters of the museum in downtown in Tehran ...see more in June 1998.

But the museum did not achieve the level of expected operation and dynamism , and came practically to a halt . the realization of the dream of creating the film museum came about when it was moved .
after some delay to its present residence in Bagh- e – Ferdows with the support of the ministry of culture and Islamic Guidance , especially the deputy minister for film Affairs , the Cultural Heritage
