Beautiful collection of glass works in a beautiful building. The location is kind of isolated from other attractions.

A museum of glass and clay built in a historic palace of Qavam-Saltaneh, with about 5000 years of glasswork in Iran, and in the region.

the building has an octagonal museum is located in a garden of 7000 meters. the interior decoration and the windows evoke the architecture of the Seljuk period. this building is composed of two floors and five floors. the first and second floors are on the first floor and the other rooms on the upper floor. It’s the combination of European and Iranian art.

The building is early 20th century and is still in good condition - used at one time as the Egyptian Embassy. Building development has nibbled away at the grounds.
The museum displays units are clearly very modern and spotlessly clean so all items can be appreciated. Also as it is not too big it does not become overwhelming. I would allow an hour for a visit.
This was the last place our little group visited in Tehran and I am very glad we managed to squeeze it in.

This is a "must do" museum in Tehran. A short walk away from the national museum and ideal for small groups is a rainy day.

The old building of the museum in the heart of Tehran's Old downtown adds to the beauty of the glass and ceramic works dating back to different eras in Persian and other nations history. I was amazed by all the tiny little details those artists could create. commuting is very easy and there a lot more to see in the neighborhood also. check out Gol Rezaiyeh Cafe for lunch ( Just open till 3 pm)

This museum was within walking distance of my hotel. The grounds are very nice and free to enter. The museum itself is housed in a beautifully restored mansion, a treat in itself. There were so many lovely displays of glass and pottery of many epochs, regions, and influences, and some inventive means of displaying them.

Just After you visit the National Museum of Iran in the same Street after 10 min walk you will arrive to this Garden and the Pavilion inside. Previously was HOUSE OF GHAVAM ( noble family in Tehran ) After that changed to embassy of Egypt and Afghanistan. And now is a Glassware museum of Tehran.
Design of builing is unique and with stucco, inside walnut wood stairs are amazing.
Collection is nice and one of the best contains Glass works from 1M BC till 16th Century and Islamic art pottery.

Normal hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day of the year except Mondays and Religious Holidays.

Enjoy
