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.

    I have no doubt to advise a visit to this museum worth the beauty of the building that houses and the booty. In addition to the valuable collection of glass and ceramic, it is worth assessing how the materials are exposed. Tasteful design. Moreover, the beauty of the place inside and exterioe the building

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.
