“Excellent museum ”

Glassware and Ceramic Museum of Iran
Ranked #10 of 169 things to do in Tehran
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

We went here on a group tour. The building itself is interesting, and set in a lovely garden. There were nomads demonstrating baking under tents to the side. The glass and ceramicware is very well presented, in a modern manner, and the collection contains some beautiful pieces. The staircase is also fabulous.

The magnificent museum is housed in one of the most spectacular houses of Tehran, which makes the whole museum a great combination of architecture and handiwork.

If you want to visit a historical and beautiful museums in Tehran, I think this place is one of them. It has awesome glassware from ancient time in Iran. I recommend this museum to all people specially tourists. Enjoy your time there. Also, the ticket is really cheap.

Have you ever encountered a pearl shell that is more or as elegant as the pearl it's hosting, full of vibrant colors which change shade at each point of view?

Well, that is the case here, just imagine that shell filled with hundreds of pearls in manifolds of shapes and colors.

The museum itself, which is one of the most beautiful mansions I have ever seen, once was belonged to a famous politician, a five time prime minister, Qavām os-Saltaneh and located in an old historical street full of museums and tourist attractions, proud and honored to be named after him for decades (The street is now called 30 Tir).

Even without considering the magnificent collection of ancient glassware and pottery displayed in the most gorgeous way (well, at least considering its rivals alongside the street and in perimeter), I would recommend treating yourself with a quality quiet time to relax from the outdoor noises and feast your eyes on all the beauty they can devour in this tourists' heaven.

This museum is not big but it is very well laid out over 3 floors and has objects covering the history and art of Iran from prehistoric to modern times. The Mina room designed with columns like Persepolis to display items is beautiful.

If you like glass and ceramics you should definitely visit this museum.
