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.

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

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

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.
