Tehran's Museum of Contemporary Art (TMOCA) is an art museum in Tehran, Iran.
Inaugurated in 1977, and built adjacent to Tehran's Laleh Park, the museum was designed by Iranian architect Kamran Diba, who employed elements from traditional Persian architecture. It is considered to have the largest collection of valuable Western modern art outside of Europe and the United States. It is said that there is approximately £2.5 billion worth of modern art held at the museum.
