  • This was our 1st visit to this museum. It was absolutely stunning to see the work!! There was some serious detail on a lot of the pieces.. I had no idea there were so many clever artists with glass. Lol the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The gift shop was great!! And the bridge outside is stunning and remarkable!! There are no other words for that for the detailed beautiful works at this museum. We will definitely be returning.
  • Price is around $18 per person. They have a showroom/kernel where you can physically see glass being blown and made into an object. There are so many beautiful creations to see that others have made. Honestly a beautiful museum. Kids are able to make/design glass and it is displayed. Love the imagination of what others can create. Definitely recommend.
