Extensive collection of American Glass, with many interesting pieces including medicine bottles, flasks that look like pistols and intricately lovely paperweights. Many famous artists are represented and the use of the deep-set windows as display cases was unusual and complimentary to the glass. The museum is large and beautiful and the collections are labeled and explained in some detail. From... More

There just isn't anywhere else that i know that you can see glass being made the way it was over 100 years ago. The museum probably isn't too interesting for the children but the colored glass on display is beautiful. Those that can appreciate the quality and craftsmanship that goes into making glass art will enjoy the beautiful displays. The... More

An interesting view into old-time glassblowing and pressing operations. You may also be fortunate enough to be permitted to help one of thede craftsmen in creating a hand-made glass masterpiece! There is a nominal fee for this and many areas to shop in the village. There is food available for purchase. Bathroom facilities available, no need for stair climbing. A... More

There is such a unique place to visit. I always do some of my Christmas shopping here in the shops. There is so much interesting and beautiful glass creations. The glass museum is unlike any museum I have viewed. Live glass blowing is usually going on weekends. There are several special events throughout the year. Great place for all ages.

We recently visited Wheaton Village, which is now officially called Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center. This attraction showcases the glass making industry of New Jersey and other handcrafted arts of the area. The center has a re-created 'main street' with older style buildings amongst a pine forest. The other main attractions are a bit off of the main walking area... More

We thought this would be something set up on the main street, then saw it's a purpose built center quite off the center of town. It includes several types of shops, a museum, and the studios where you can see glass blowing going on. So much fun! The glass blowing was fascinating. I've seen glassmaking before but it is always... More

What an under-rated and exceptional museum and overall experience. The Glass Museum has a spectacular collection - and if you didn't know that south Jersey was a hot bed of glass making - with no rivals anywhere in the US - you will after you take in this amazing collection... If you have a chance, sign up for the glass... More

We expected to stay 45 minutes at Wheaton Glass and spent most of the day. The glass-blowing demonstration was very interesting. I've seen glass-blowing before, but this was much more involved. I wanted to make something, they have a make-your-own program, but all the spots were booked. Reservations are recommended. We also saw a pottery demonstration and talked to two... More

Wheaton Village is a very interesting and scenic play to take a stroll or go to a special event. The village has several building designed to give an old time feeling, a general store with interesting goodies, a glass blowing building, ducks in ponds, pavillions, etc. The grounds host outdoor events such as craft shows and detailed antique exhibits.
