[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. This was one of many places we visited during our trip and the review is oriented to our experience travelling by bus as a large group.] We were met upon arrival by... More

This is a great place to visit! We live in Weston so we have been there quite a few times. There is so much to see. They thousands of glass creations from as far back as the early 1900's and even a few from the late 1800's. There are beautiful glass bowls, plates, cups & saucers, salt & pepper shakers,... More

This is a volunteer run museum that is jammed packed with examples of the high points of the American working and art glass industry. The collection is extensive and preserves the rich history of the many great glassmakers of not only WV but all throughout the Ohio valley. Other displays show the tools and processes used in making glass and... More

There is something for every glass collector to enjoy. We were there for a weekend to help ID a donation of oil lamps...over 2000 of them! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and everyone is made to feel welcome when they walk in the door. And it is FREE.

I love glass and was so excited to learn of this magnificent museum. Admission is free and there is plenty of metered street parking (25 cents per hour). We were greeted when we entered and I was overwhelmed with all the collections, the library, the workshop, the marble collection, the gift shop, the storage of duplicates - I could go... More

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
