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.

Being that my Dad worked for Anchor Hocking glass for 45 years, we have used alot of the products shown in their show room. It brought back a lot of memories of using them and still own. It's sad that plastic is used so much more than glass. Not in my home.

My wife and I are both glass fans and during a visit to Columbus, we decided on a side trip to Lancaster to see the Glass Museum and surrounding attractions. We didn't actually realize before arriving that the glass is almost entirely serving and table pieces and collectibles. We had been expecting more art glass, but in fact the museum... More

The staff here are quite knowledgeable but not always friendly. If you are a collector or interested in glass than this is a spot for you. For the average folks on vacation it's a waste of time and cash.
