Beykoz Glass and Crystal Museum

History of the Building

Beykoz Glass and Crystal Museum is named after Beykoz Imperial Glass and Crystal Factory which was the most prominent glass factory of the Ottoman period and established in this neighborhood. The historical building of the museum was constructed by Abraham Pasha who was the chamberlain of the Khedive of Egypt, İsmail Pasha, and promoted to the rank of Vizier by Sultan Abdülaziz. In the 19th century, Abraham Pasha ordered pavilions, aviaries, pools, a theatre and stables to be built on his land in Beykoz. One of these, the stable building has been restored and transformed into a museum by the National Palaces Administration. This magnificent U-plan stone building, which is in typical 19th century architectural style, provides distinctive museum spaces.

 

Beykoz Glass and Crystal Museum is located in extensive wooded grounds with a total area of approximately 360 decares. The museum has a magnificent garden planted with dazzling exotic plants and 117 different tree species in every shade of green. Abraham Pasha devoted particular attention to the garden of his country estate, brought and planted trees and flowers there that were not native to the Ottoman Empire. Thanks to the various and historical flora of its garden, Beykoz Glass and Crystal Museum is at the same time a botanical museum.

 

Beykoz Glass and Crystal Museum displays the developmental stages of Turkish glass art. In addition to Turkish glassware, the museum holds a collection of unique works of art manufactured in Europe for the Ottoman palaces. The museum exhibits 1.480 pieces of outstanding examples of glass art arranged in 12 thematic sections.
