“A lot to learn about glass”

Nationaal Glasmuseum
Ranked #2 of 11 things to do in Leerdam
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Good museum. Especially seeing the craftsmen at work, willing to answer your questions. Very worth visiting, especially in the cold seasons because of the pleasant warmth around the glass ovens.

Today I visited Leerdam, a town that is not really in an area where I would go to normally (south of Utrecht), but I had my museumcard and wanted to go to something different for a change.

I combined it with a visit to the glassblowing demonstration, which is more in the old part of town, in a wooden building. If you see how much work goes into making glass, then you'll appreciate the objects in the museum even more!.

My wife and I visited Venice and I can tell you if you like the objects they make there and you'll love the ones in Leerdam too. But you have to be interested in glass/glass art otherwise you'll be out of the museum (and bored at the demonstration) in no time.

The distance between the museum and the glassblowing demonstration is by foot approximately 10 minutes, but it is worth it. The museum itself is housed in two older houses that are connected with each other by "bridges" in which part of the collection is displayed.

For me it was very nice, very interesting and I would recommend it, if you are in the area.. have a look.

One thing, I don't think it is suitable for all types of wheelchairs, so check it our, before you go!.

We have been here before, but that was many years ago before the renovation.
But it certainly was worth a re-visit.
By annexing the house next door, they have almost tripled the exhibition space.
