We had not been to Weston in quite a few years. The little glass museum has grown into a well lit, clean and charming tribute to the glass industry that has been so important to West Virginia. A great research room and gift shop round out the offerings. Be sure to sign up to be a member.

In a recent visit to the area we decided to stop in the museum. We are not into glass but we did walk all through the museum. All the cases were clean and bright. We were amazed at all the places where glass had been made. We even learned of some places that had once been near our hometown area.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the museum - brought back some memories too - just filled with glass pieces from all over the United States - also has a marble collection - each piece was grouped with a similar piece from a different manufacture - just so much to see - we are not collectors but were in awe of some many...

Due to a completely volunteer staff, this facility is grossly undermanned but incredibly well stocked with West Virginia glass. For those uninformed, the inventory is extensive with most in storage for rotating displays; the place may appear to be only full of glass, but for the collector, historian or tradesman - this is a treasure trove of hand blown, artesian...

If you are in town for something else, it's something to do. Tons of glass to browse through, but I wasn't overly impressed. We did get a greeting right away from the person working, but when checking out we had to hear about her horrible day and some personal issues. I definitely would not go out of my way to... More

From other reviews, I expected a more professional place.. They do have a huge collection, but they were not good at telling the story of WV glass making. It's a bit of a hodge podge. Nice volunteers.

This place is amazing. It has grown exponentially since my last visit a decade ago. It's cool because they not only have gorgeous decorative glass--they also have displays of glassmaking equipment and utilitarian glass. And it's free--what more can you ask for?

The Museum of American Glass in West Virginia is a 'must see' for every glass collector. There are beautiful displays that are ever changing, interactive opportunities, a fully stocked research library and archives, a small Museum Store that includes individual dealer cases, paperweights, books, monographs on a variety of glass related subjects, and etc., etc. The Museum is constantly expanding...

The day was HOT, we had an hour to kill before going to the TALA so we walked around town and came upon this museum. The window displays drew us in. Several year ago we toured the Corning Museum of Glass in NY and loved it. But what we saw there was mostly art glass. What this little museum has... More
