One of the many attractions of Shiraz, located on Lotf Ali Khan Zand Street, is the Museum of Fars History Treasury.

After extensive studies, gathering information and selecting prominent people who had a major role in making history in Fars, the construction of wax figures began, which took about 4 years under the supervision of Professor Shams. Finally, the museum, with 37 wax figures of influential characters, among whom were provincial officials, professors, artists, and some citizens, was inaugurated in the large basement of the house of Zinat-ol-Molk in 2005.

The figures on display are arranged based on different historical periods, beginning from the pre-Islamic era and ending with the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Among them, you can see the likenesses of Cyrus the Great, Xerxes, Shapur Sassanid , Saadi, Barbod (a Sassanid musician), Hussein Ibn Mansour Hallaj, Abish Khatoon, Mulla Sadra, Mirza Shirazi Khan Zand, Lotfali Khan Zand, Agha Mohammad Khan Qajar, Ayatollah Dastgheib, and others.
