  • We walked from the archaeological museum, not far away. The museum is also surrounded by a garden, which is divided into two parts, half of which exhibits glass and the other half exhibits ceramic ware. Some of the exhibits are very good, but not much. It's not a big place.

  • In a splendid palace in Tehran is hosted this, small, precious Museum. You can admire beautiful archaeological finds in glass and ceramics. Considerable internal architecture with a great circular Hall, embraced by two staircases. Beautiful the majestic Central chandelier.

  • We spent a few hours in it and were very pleased. Primarily for the opulence that overwhelms you, above all in the great Hall in which are located all the various gifts that the Shah was receiving from various political representatives and not, in the world at the time. The compositions of glass and mirrors are both complexity and wonder truly amazing. We finally had the pleasure and good fortune by taking a guided tour with a girl from the Secretariat of the Museum (which maintains the full ride for free and cannot accept tip ... Unfortunately!)

  • Olg nobkess hous with garden was transfirmed to musem by Farah Diba Pahlavi. Very good musem with muster pieses of glasses.
  • It has lots of beautiful glassware and ceramic collections related to different period of Iran's history. The building was built in the first years of 20th century and it belonged to Qavamosaltaneh (Ahmad Qavam). .
  • It is Ghavam ol Saltaneh "قوام السطنه" house and recommend for iranians and foreigners.
  • Very calm and relaxing in the middle of the crazy quarters of Tehran.

Where to stay in Tehran

The northern districts of Tehran possess a more suburban, cosmopolitan feel, and a more spacious form, with a number of accommodations geared towards international tourism. Luxury hotels with pools overlooking the parks sit alongside some more basic and humble offerings, usually located on the lesser side streets. The southern districts offer a livelier experience, where guesthouses, hostels, and simple hotels line the confusing bundle of winding streets. Of course, some areas of the south open up a little, and here you'll find a good number of standard and mid-range hotels with varying levels of amenities.
