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. It... More

I have lived in New Jersey most of my life and still enjoy Wheaton Village. It was a cold and windy day and we wanted to get out of the house. We decided to go to Wheaton Village. They have a great glass museum and at various times of the day you can watch the glass makers due their craft.... More

I wasn't impressed as we walked in the front gates and saw only a few shops in front of me, but once you make that first right on to the path things get a lot better. The glass studio, the pottery building,& the museum itself are all wonderful. There are live demonstrations and interactive classes not to mention so much... More

The Village is a great place to spend a day. The area and grounds are beautiful, quiet and full of old trees and lots of birds. The facility is very nice, clean, and easy to get in and out of the buildings. The glass factory is well worth the time, they show you how glass is blown, and explain how... More

This was our 4th visit to Wheaton-3 of which were day trips with our grandchildren while we were vacationing in Cape May Point. The kids (6,8, 11) enjoyed the varying ways they could spend their time and especially enjoyed the pottery demonstration. Everyone at Wheaton is exceptionally friendly and well informed-it's definitely worth the trip and the admission fee.
