There are some cultural parts inside the tower such as a library with more than 2000 books , Iranology hall with four aquarium containing beautiful fishes carried here from Persian gulf , computer hall where you can search & see more information about the tower , conference hall with 300 person capacity , two galleries and an anthropology  museum attached to this tower in the basement .

    It takes 5-10 minutes walk to get there from one of the closest metro stations. Impressive /photogenic esp. in the evening when illuminated.
