 (CBS) -- For 34 years, the former U.S. Embassy in Iran’s capital, Tehran, was off limits to Westerners.

In 1979, at the height of the Iranian revolution, students stormed the embassy and took 52 Americans hostage for 444 days. Since then, it’s been used as a training center and anti-American museum.
