This article aims to investigate the construction of a museum garden instead of a museum park in transforming mines into a tourism environment. For mine tourism, it is necessary to change the use of mines and turn them into park museums or mining museum gardens. Since the park is a product of western countries and is not fully compatible with Iran's low water nature and culture, it is suggested that all the mines that are converted into a tourist environment should be changed into a mining museum garden instead of a museum park. Due to hundreds of abandoned, intensive, and inactive mines waiting to be transformed into tourism environments, it is necessary to build mining environments with Iranian garden architecture or combine them with Iranian gardens and parks. In that case, a new kind of green space called a mining museum garden will be born in Iran, which is compatible with Iran's spirit and dry nature, and a new field for landscape architecture will be provided for the first time in Iran. So it is necessery to that the Ministry of Industries and Mines, with the participation of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Tourism, and Handicrafts, establish a coherent organization, and that, while classifying mines in terms of tourism, criteria for the design and conversion of mines into a mining museum garden, a mining museum park, or a combination of the two be developed.
