  • The Glassware and Ceramic Museum The building is situated in a garden with a span of 7,000 square meters and was used by Qavam himself till the year 1953. Later, the building were sold to the Egyptians as the new premises for the embassy of Egypt and remained in their possession for seven years. When relations were strained between Iran and Egypt at the time of Abdul Nasser and subsequent to the closure of the Egyptian embassy in Iran, the Commercial Bank purchased the building. However, it was sold to Farah Pahlavi’s bureau in 1976 and was turned into a museum by three groups of Iranian, Austrian and French architects. The museum was opened in 1980 and was registered in the list of national heritage in 1998. Glassware and Ceramic Museum is administrated by Iranian Cultural Heritage Organization.The head of the museum is Mrs.Farzaneh Ghaeini.
  • Beautiful architecture 🏯, full of fantastic glass works of the 2nd century BC to the 19th century AD.There may be a little difficulty to find a park space. Nowruz is the best time to give it a visit!👌 Ticket price is 50,000 Rls for Iranians (Nowruz 95).
  • It's a dreaming place with a rainbow of colorful Glasswares.
  • حتما به زير زمين اينجا هم سر بزنيد
  • هم موزه دیدنیه و هم ساختمان آن
