Rodi is a great teacher--very patient and concerned that you understand each step as she works with you to create a paperweight, ornament or pumpkin. It was great fun to choose the colors of glass to make my,paperweight, and work with the glass personally. One of the best deals for this kind of experience you'll find.

Got to make our own ornaments after picking out our colors. Doesn't take very long and the finished products are nice!

I enjoyed the demonstrations and hands on glass project. I found the museum confusing, as far as getting around. Some interactive displays were not working.

My mom, 2 sisters and I stopped here before heading up to Naples. We decided to make paperweights. Rodi was great. She explained everything in detail and answered every question we had. Then she worked with each of us individually to create our piece. It was a great experience and we highly recommend it. For a small fee we had... More

Don't miss the change to blow your own glass ornament. Fascinating and fun. They'll ship it to you in a few days, after it's cooled.

I highly recommend the Hands on activities for kids and adults alike to engage in while at the museum, reservations in advance highly recommended. We will treasure our Christmas ornaments always and the fond memories of the visit/experience.

Signed up for a glass blowing class last year and a flameworking class this year. I went to the gift shop and loved the stuff, but thought it was a little pricey.
