The Marble palace (Kakh-e Marmar or Marmar Palace) is scheduled to open to the public by the next month.

The palace served as a museum for a year before the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Now, after four decades, it will be a venue for showcasing Persian arts and cultural heritage handcrafted since the first millennium BC onwards.

Construction of the palace started in 1934 by French engineer Joseph Leon and Iranian architect Fat’hollah Ferdows on the orders of Reza Shah for the purpose of official functions and receptions.

The palace and its premises is currently under ownership of the Mostazafan Foundation of the Islamic Revolution. Parviz Fattah, the head of the foundation, announced that the doors of Marble Palace will open to the public after 41 years in less than a month. Journalists and media associates were the first people to visit the palace after decades on January 26th.
