A group of Germans living in Iran visited the "Museum of Apprentices" before its official inauguration in the oil-rich city of Abadan in southwestern Iran.

The visit took place on November 11.

The Germans had travelled to Abadan to visit remnants of the 1980-1988 Iraqi imposed war. The Museum of Apprentices is the second museum of petroleum industry in Abadan, which is known worldwide for its oil refinery.
