There are so many designs and colors of glass here and there are quite a few rooms to explore. They had a fairly long and informative glass blowing demonstration this week with a pumpkin as the result. There are beautiful glass products you can buy also.

Very well presented museum with informative glass blowing demonstration. A very good trail for children with a prize of 3 glass marbles was a bonus. We all enjoyed this museum and would happily return on our next visit to the Cape

When we arrived with our three kids the place was packed. A tour bus with older people had just unloaded. For $9 and adult you get to see a guy make a wineglass. We did not get a chance to really see much and left within 20 minutes of entering the building. Way to crowded for us. Not a place... More

Went here on a family visit and had a great educational experience. The looping movie is dated and not historical about the Sandwich Glass Co but the live demonstration is top notch. The glass blower was not only great at his craft but was phenomenal at engaging spectators. Recommend visiting for the live demonstration alone!

Very nice people staff this museum, which contains many fine examples of Sandwich glass. There was a glassblowing demonstration during my visit which I thoroughly enjoyed. They have a small, but nice, gift shop where you can buy samples. This is a definite must-see on the Cape.

The museum is informative and has beautiful and historical artwork displayed. In July when it's not a beach day this a great activity. More for couple than those with kids. Although I will say the glass blowing demonstration is fun for all ages.

Lots of interactive displays. Lots of historical glass. Four or five holographic historical room is with characters. By far our favorite was the glass blower/stand up comic. Definitely recommend even at nine dollars a ticket!
