Make your own paper weight! Or watch the experts making various glass pieces. Cost is reasonable and makes for an afternoon outing for families. There are a couple of shops including one where candy may be purchased by the piece. It is one of the places that has put Millville on the map.

We have dropped by here a few times in the past few years, usually when there is some sort of craft fair or seasonal event. They do a great job with putting together these events, at least from the consumers stand point. The shops here sell all sorts of things made by the local artists as well as other items.... More

You can watch them make glass at certain times during the day. We went to the 1:30 show. It is a well-designed area with elevated seating above the work area and glass furnaces so you can get a bird's eye view of the action while a narrator explains what is going on. There is also a large building, that looks... More

The historic nature of the village makes it worth a stop. I'm sure thousands of people travelling Route 55 go right past here. They should plan to visit. The Creative Glass Center of America is located there and artists are usually working in the hot shop. There's also a glass museum and a few different gift shops. It is only... More

Wheaton village is a really nice place to visit. I went with my family with kids ranging in age from preschooler to high schooler. We all enjoyed the glass museum, the glass blowing was really cool. The shops sold things ranging from fun and cool to beautiful and artistic. We also enjoyed watching the pottery demonstration. The grounds of the... More

Interesting place with museum and glass making demonstrations. Other than that and a few shops, there isn't much more unless there is some event running, therefore go when there is something else happening.

In years gone by it was the place where the fancy Avon Bottle were made, and beautiful dishes. Now most of the glass factories are a thing of the past, but the Wheaton Village lives on for Special Events.

Artisans were very friendly. Museum was delightful. Only outside eating. Watched glass paperweights being made. Potter made a bowl.

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
