Beautiful old house is worth the visit on its own, the glassware collection is an added bonus, a nice addition to a visit to the Tehran bazaar.

I wasn't sure about the museum, but when we arrived and really spent time among the exhibits, it was astounding what a fabulous collection they had. From illuminated manuscripts to golden kraters and artwork, the museum may be small but is packed with treasures. The 8th to 10th century Kufic Script manuscripts were amazingly contemporary in their feel. Visit to... More
