Glassware and Ceramic Museum or "Abgine Museum" was the previous house of Ghavam Al Saltaneh. in this beautiful building, you can find glass and ceramic artifacts from Neishabour, Kashan, Rey, and Gorgan. Iranians started using glass a long time ago, so you can find objects here dating back from the 2nd millennium BC. Hans Hollein, a famous Austrian architect, designed parts of this museum, he was inspired by Persepolis' pillars. My favourite item was "ashkdan". In Persian, it means "tear container". the legend goes that these swan-neck bottles were used to hold tears of women whose husbands were away at war. Abgine Museum is only 10 min walk from National Museum. so you can visit them both in the same day.

Absolutely a one of kind collection of glass and ceramic art from different periods of Iranian history. The curation is well and lets you travel through time. I highly recommend this place to those with a kin eyes for glass and ceramic art. The bookshop had a great books on Tehran and a vast collection of catalogues from other museums in Iran. It was a walking distance from Iran National Museum and near subway there were many good licensed food stands near the museum offering light food to traditional food. Good one to visit.
