  • There was No enough information about things and their history. Every thing was old, antique and so beautiful but without enough description. There were also a lot of precious object which place near each other that makes watch them difficult. Anyway dont loss to see this amazing place.
  • The museum has been decorated with traditional style and tiles. In the past, it has been the house of Iran prime minister "Ahmad-e Qavam". Later it turned into a museum and was allocated to the ancient and antique glassware and ceramic relics.
