The world is full of museums. This one stands out because it focuses on the art of glass-making. The museum itself is unique in design, and the fun starts before you even go inside with much art in their courtyard. Inside, there are several galleries of glass art to view that are interesting, documented and well-displayed. But the outstanding feature of this museum is the live glass-making theater. Resident or guest artists work as the audience sits nearby in the amphitheater-style seats. A host uses a microphone to describe what is being done by the artist and assistants as they use the furnaces to heat the glass to a temperature that allows them to mold and form the glass. A unique thing is that the audience is allowed to ask questions during the process. Most people stayed at least 30 minutes here, mezzmorized by the intense heat and skill of the artists. Definitely worth the price of admission.
