Specialty Museum Museum
Observe a vast collection of ancient glass and ceramic pieces at Glassware Museum of Tehran. The exhibition features works dating from 4000 BCE to modern day contemporary art. Originally the museum served as a private residence for a Persian family, until it became a museum in 1976. The artwork is featured in eight halls, each portraying different historical eras and civilizations. Most pieces come from the towns of Gorgan, Neishabur, Rey, and Kashan. You'll find a short-term exhibition here, featuring modern artists inspired by the permanent collection. Look for the museum store if you would like to purchase souvenir or travel items.
