We enjoyed ourselves so much at this museum. Again, it is situated near the water, so it is a beautiful location. They have done a super job of laying out the exhibits and showcasing the lovely glass pieces. You are given a marble to vote on the piece you liked the best. This was a very fun thing to do....

From the webside and brochure it looks like a big museum for contemporary glass but we get a bit disapointed. But good value as no fees for kids up to 17 y.o.. We learnt a lot about the world of glass in everydaylife. Funny playing with the kaleidoscope and creating our own glass object using the digital glassblower and having... More

We would love to expand the museum and show more of our permanent collection - unfortunately this is not possible at the moment :-) But... More

The old town and port of Ebeltoft is an absolute gem, full of old Danish charm and character. Adjacent to the harbour stands the Glass Museum. I have been several times to Ebeltoft and must have walked past this museum many times without any inclination to enter - big mistake! I am so glad that my recent visit included entry... More

As it was the only rainy day, we sought refuge here. With our four year old granddaughter we were prepared for a brief visit. Four hours later we emerged, full of memories and sights. The works here are different, interesting, colourful, and very creative. Our granddaughter really enjoyed many aspects, as you can touch many exhibits, and some are interactive.... More

This was a fantastic experience. Much more than expected. This little local museum shows the whole history of glass-art. It includes works of artists from the whole world. At the end a visit to the museum shop is a must. There are many small treasures.

The Glasmuseet Ebeltoft has a wonderful setting on the harbor in Ebeltoft, less than an hour drive from Aarhus. It's a fairly small museum with works by well known artists of many nationalities. Perhaps the best exhibit is a room filled with works by Steffen Dam, a local artist, who does interesting works that look like jellyfish and fossils encased... More
