Visited with family member. It is a little hard to find. You have to look for the signs. It is located like a business in downtown. It is across from a bank. You can park right before the museum if you know where you are going or on the weekends in the bank parking lot and walk across. They have... More

My daughter and I went there just to kill a little bit of time. Upon entering it took my breath away. We spent well over an hour there but it didn't seem like we were there but a short time. The 2 ladies that greeted us were very pleasant and helpful.

Enjoyed our visit and looking at the multitude of cases of old glass items. Lots of interesting items to review. Had a great time with my girlfriends talking about the older items that we remember our grandparents having. Wonderful little place to visit!

I loved this museum. Weston is known for glass, from many years ago when it was actually made in several plants in Weston. They have done an excellent job of preserving history.

If you love glass or just have an appreciation for glass this is the place to see. Learn about the history of glass. Take your youngsters and let them experience the some of the textures and things as glass is made. They even have a place set aside for little ones, so don't be afraid to take them in. This... More

My love of glass brought me here. I loved it, but would have liked to see each piece researched and tagged. A nice selection of gifts and tees to support the museum. A must see for glass enthusiasts. My main focus is Fenton collections. Of which I have a few

[My wife and I just returned home from leading a group of 50 seniors from our church on a four-day, charter bus outing to the Elkins, WV area.
