I visited the Ohio Glass Museum in August 2015 and was quite surprised by this great little museum. At first, I will admit I was a bit perplexed as to why I was looking at display cases filled with TV tubes, medical equipment, and tail light fixtures, until I realized that the history of glass encompasses more than just vases...

We took the glassblowing class and made ornaments. My son is 10, and he was even able to do it with the help of the instructor. This is something we will definitely not forget.

An Art Deco style museum housing glass exhibits that change periodically with themed glass items. There are volunteers who are available to explain the exhibits and lead you through the different areas of the museum such as a movie showing the history of glass making in the Lancaster area, which is the home of glass manufacturer, Anchor Hocking, an100 year...

More than just a museum, you can watch glass blowing demonstration and take a class. If traveling any distance call ahead to set up a time. Made a glass Christmas tree ornament which was a lot of fun. Price was very reasonable as you get to keep what you make, they will ship it too as the piece as to... More

One of the best glassblowing exhibitions I've seen. That alone is worth the stop. The exhibits change regularly but there a mini showcases of past exhibits. Docents are very knowledgeable and love answering questions.

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
