I remember going here at least once in my childhood, but I do not remember it very well. It was wonderful to see it again as an adult and truly behold what creations were present to see there. I also saw a pair of what appeared to be Buddhist monks in the gallery and was for a moment more excited... More

Loved this museum. The exhibits were so interesting and beautiful. Didn't expect the museum to be as large as it was- I only had 2 hours to visit and had to rush through too fast. They have a section where a craftsman makes a glass vase in an oven- there are large screens so you can see up close, and... More

Best collection of glass and glass artifacts anywhere. Extensive collection going back in time as well as comprehensive collections donated from around the world. Well worth the price of admission because there is enough to see and do within. They have demonstrations, workshops and interactive centers. Great for the whole family.

It's everything you ever wanted to know about glass...and then some! The facility is a beautiful piece of architecture which houses an amazing and vast display of glass art and everyday objects throughout history. There's also a very interesting section about science and industrial uses of glass products, hands-on activities, glassblowing demonstrations, and a store that sells everything from the... More

I don't know what we were expecting when planning our visit to this museum but I know I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. I never knew there were so many things made out of glass, very decorative, colorful, amazing. And the museum store has something for everyone's budget. We sat in on a glass blowing demonstration which... More

This is a large, well funded operation which has a spectacular collection of glass. All eras are covered, ranging from the early creation of glass objects, right up to contemporary installations. They also have very good demonstrations (we saw one on how glass breaks. My only complaint is with organization. There is no clear path to follow in viewing the... More
