The glass museum is located inside of a glass store. You can buy anything from vases to toys for Christmas tree. If you want to visit the museum you need to pay at the cashier.

The glass hut shows travellers how the glass industry works and how artists sculpt figurines with extremely hot glass.. You also can get to blow your vases. Tip - if you are travelling on weekends then they only have 2 ppl doing the glass work and hence only glass vases are done figurines are done only during the weekdays .

Lovely 2-3 hours spent in browsing through the small museum and attached shops. The highlight for us was seeing the master craftsmen ( and women ) making the glass pieces- right from blowing to grinding and polishing them. And of course, blowing our own vase for 15 €. I thought it was a steal ( and I loved how it... More

The museum is interesting, but on the smaller side. But the real attraction is watching the glass blowing. There are two areas next to each other. On one side, the professional blowers are making the items they sell in the store. It is really fascinating to watch. Then on the other side you are invited to blow your own vase... More

I love glass. I saw the most beautiful pieces and hope one day to have them but in the meantime had fun making my own vase. So pleased I did it!

It is a very nice museum/factory to visit. It is one of the few places that I know where you actually can help blowing your own vase. Choose the format, the colors/lines let the pro do his job, help him blowing a couple of times, wait for 20 minutes and for 15€ it is yours. Go to his colleague where... More

The glassblowing exhibition along with other things makes this a nice place to stop for an hour or two. The exhibition, museum, workshop and store are very nicely laid out and has disabled persons visitor capacity (which is nice). The glassblowing shop is fascinating and if you have the patience you can assist them blowing a vase. There is an... More
