Under Glass Painting Museum of Iran

Stained Glass Museum Hidden Gem in Tehran

There is a unique villa in downtown Tehran that many locals will have never heard about. Though you shouldn’t miss it as these gems are few and far between as Tehran continues to develop.

The Under-Glass Painting Museum was donated to the local city a few years ago by the family of Dr Siavash Shaghaghi which had built the building, following its restoration the delightful building was then handed over the cultural authorities who turned the villa into a museum to preserve it and its artworks for future generations.

The Under-Glass Museum is often overlooked due to its location off the beaten track, as well as being overshadowed by the Abgineh Museum in the west of the city centre. However, the restored villa is home to some of the most beautiful stained glass works from the past couple of hundred years.
