Tehran, Sept 9, IRNA – Netherlands’ culture-historical relics exhibition will be held in the Iranian capital city of Tehran in early October, said the head of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicraft and Tourism Organization.

“Over 300 culture-historical antiquities will be displayed in the exhibition,” Ali Asghar Mounesan said.

“Most of the relics in “Netherlands; narrated by Drents museum” are made in 18-20th century,” Mounesan added.

He emphasized maintaining cultural relations with other countries and said, “Such events confirm Iran’s will to establish dynamic cultural ties with other nations around the world.”

An exhibition of the artifacts from National Museum of Iran called “Iran; The cradle of civilization” is underway in Drents Museum.
