A pleasant, fairly focused museum that won't take long to visit. But don't skip the gift shop. Affordable, hand-blown glass, from Christmas ornaments to stylized vases and bowls.

regardless of which exhibit is up when you visit. If you haven't seen glassmakers at work be sure to do that too. The staff/volunteers are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

The museum looks small time if you just peek inside. The exhibit is small. But, the best thing you get is a session watching and listening to the resident glass blower take you through making a vase.

Glass pieces are arranged in well-lit glass cases that showcase the beauty of the pieces selected for the shows. Allow an hour, longer if you're there on a day when they're doing glass-blowing demonstrations. AAA members get discounted admission.

We recently visited the Glass Museum in Lancaster, OH. This place is very attractive. The hosts are very friendly. The glassware is beautiful. The short movie and glass blowing was very educational. They change the glassware every 6 months so this is a place you could visit more then once.
