During the Qajar era, Saad Abad was composed of seven districts. During the Pahlavi era some regions were annexed to it and in this manner the Saad Abad palace was extended. Saad Abad consists of 18 palaces which were resided by the former Shah of Iran and his relatives.Reza Shah first lived there in the 1920s. Mohammad Reza Pahlavi moved there in the 1970s. Following the revolution however seven palaces in Saad Abad were turned into museums and palace - museums open to public. These palaces included the White Palace (Nation Museum), Mother's Palace (Museum of Reminiscence and Warning), Shahram (Museum of Military Implements), Shahnaz (Saad Abad Natural History Museum), Ministry of Court (Museum of Fine Arts), Shahvand Palace (Green Museum) and Shams Palace (Museum of Anthropological Research.
