Informative and captivating, this museum is a must. It has a world renowned collection of modern glass pieces and is set in a beautiful location. We arrived in time to catch one of the artists demonstrating his technique. Sadly, as we don't speak Danish we couldn't understand the narrative, or jokes. It is worth making the trip to this museum... More

The museum has a beautiful location; the curation of the glass exhibits is great, and we never had any real idea what art treasures could be created with glass. If you have time drop by the glass workshop to see pieces of art being created live!

If you love contemporary glass you will enjoy this museum with pieces from both Danish and international artists. The staff are very friendly and helpful but beware I ended up spending more than I intended!

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

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
