As it is known, Tabriz is the city of "The Firsts" because many of inventions and innovations were introduced and utilized n Tabriz for the first time in Iran. As a vivid example of the claim, Tabriz municipality was established over 110 years ago (as the first municipality of the country). Some years later, Tabriz municipal central office was constructed under supervision of German engineers and based on a German style. This building was the host of many mayors until the new municipality building was built on a new site on Aboreihan Street.

This museum is considered as the first museum of history in Iran’s municipalities. It was opened in 2007 coinciding with the 100th anniversary of establishment of the municipality in Tabriz
