A treasure house of decorative tiles
This is a museum dedicated to the fascinating world of tiles, introducing their development over history. Our collection contains over 7000 examples of decorative tiles from ancient times through the modern era. In addition to carefully selecting pieces from the collection for exhibition, we have also recreated architectural spaces featuring tiles from various historical periods. Visitors to the museum will be able to encounter the tiles that have enriched human life over history and share in our ancestors’ passion for decoration.
