Countdown to the opening of Darvazeh Dowlat Gas Station Museum
The 3rd museum of Iranian Oil Industry Museums Scheme
Kerosene, as one of the most popular fuels in everyday life, was distributed in a small stand at Darvazeh Dowlat Filling Station. One of the oldest filling stations in Tehran, Darvazeh Dowlat is currently undergoing reconstruction, and will soon be open for the interested visitors.
Beside kerosene, other petroleum products were often sold at oil dealerships such as engine oil and insecticides (with the Emshi trademark, etc.). The stand is now ornamented with symbols and life-sized cutouts of dealers and customers.
