Three of us enjoyed creating glass paper weights - what a unique, hands-on class taught by an experienced artisan! Three of us gals made a day of driving to Lancaster, taking a glass working class at the Ohio Glass Museum and having an excellent vegetarian gluten free lunch at The Well restaurant.

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. He is a born speaker and a gifted craftsman. He was also knowledgeable and gave us tips on how to glue glass (we're... More

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.

just when you think you've seen all the glass you could see, then, a visit to the glass museum is in order....beginning with a short movie about the history of glass making in Lancaster, especially anchor hocking glass, you are then directed to the various exhibits of the different types of molds used to form the glass, and, then you...

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.
