We watched a young man display his glass blowing skills at the 10:00Am show in the Sandwich Glass Museum on the 29th of December 2015. He had a superb personality and explained fully what techniques he was using and why. He was a natural born teacher and said he had only been doing this for about 4 years. He was... More

Easy way to spend a little time seeing glass creations and live glass blowing demonstrations. Not a day or even half a day activity. An hour at most.

I did not expect too much about this place cause this museum in the small town. But when I entered in here, I really surprised. The collection of glass is beautiful, and I can see the show how to make the glass things. Every item is so good. If you have enough time when you visit Cape Code, I really... More

Took my parents here on a rain day... Surprised at the history here, very educational. The glass blowing tutorial / demonstration was pretty cool.

I have to compliment the curators at the Sandwich Glass Museum. The exhibits have extensive explanations that are well researched. The biggest problem is taking the time to read the extensive amount of information presented. There obviously is lots of glass to see, but the write-ups about glass making and the history of Sandwich glass are really interesting. One hour... More

The museum explains the history of glass, specifically the roll the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company had to play in it. There is an hourly glassblowing demonstration. This was also very informative. I've seen artisans blow glass; but never had someone explain what they were doing and why. To me the glassblowing demonstration alone was worth the price of admission.... More

During our spontaneous road trip through cape code, we came across this delightful museum! It does not only showcase a lot of beautiful glass works of art, but has an actual glass blower demonstrate the process of glass blowing. There are nice presentations in the central area of the building. Overall, a lovely visit!

the is one of the places on Cape Cod that should be pointed out all tourist. The glass is beautiful. The story behind the build up of the glass works and the closure is fascinating. Why was the glass works never rebuilt!
