The third oil museum of Iran, Dareaze Dowlat Gas Station, in downtown Tehran  to be launched soon.

The Darvazeh Dowlat gas station, known under No. 6 in Saadi St., is among the most ancient ones in Tehran and is among few filling stations whose main building still stands. That is why it was chosen to serve as museum of petroleum.

Operations for the restoration of the Darvazeh Dowlat filing station started in two phases in early 2016. When the first phase started later that year, research was conducted on the history of the gas station. Images, memoires and manuscripts were gathered about the gas station.

The Darvazeh Dowlat filing station is expected to come online after the end of the second phase to be open to the public.
