Whilst travelling through Dudley on a narrowboat we stopped at The Glass House Museum, Dudley. This excellent Museum is FREE entry and during school and holiday times offers a working demonstration of how Glass was blown, used and fired. For those visiting out of school or holiday times, they offer a FREE audio handset so you can wander around and... More

Had a lovely afternoon here. Children happy, aged 4, 7, 8 and 11. All had a go at glassblowing and the marbles bought for £1 each were very popular. Will go back!!

Red House Cone is an amazing piece of industrial archaeology but I think this site has quite a few challenges. On a recent visit I saw an amazing glassblowing demonstration by a lady called Charlotte. She was one of the best demonstrators I have ever seen and really brought the place alive with her incredible skills, excellent clear explanations and... More

This is becoming a far better destination than it used to be - huge improvements to access and the site itself is a step in the right direction- the wardens are knowledgeable and very amiable

Lovely historical complex for adults and children. Lots to see and often special things to do. Lovely little tea shop on site. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Craft shops to buy from. Additionally see the canal and the ever hungry ducks from the site.

Free entry,but small charge for children's activities.the activities where on the theme of the mad hatter's tea party, so children made hats/masks,puppets, window pictures, plus there was free colouring also available. A duck hunt, and children got a bag of sweets for finding them all. We watched a woman blow glass and made it into a plate, that was really... More

Interesting rejuvenated historical site including several small craft exhibitions, a gift shop, café and canal side seating area. Disappointed there were no live demonstrations on the day of my visit. Apparently you need to go on a week-end or school holiday for these. However it was still an informative and well worth while experience.

Free entry to a unique industrial heritage site with a truly amazing brick built cone dating from the 18th century. This site is the only surviving full brick cone used for glass production since the 1780's. There are other exhibitions on site, historical/art etc and a good number of craft and artists studio's ranging from glass wares, ceramics, art and... More

Free in and lots to see though don't expect a day here. I love marvelling at the brick work inside the actual cone, a credit to the builders of the Black Country. Café on site or you can sit by the CANAL (not a river as a previous reviewer stated!!!!!) to have a packed lunch. Also glass and artisan shops... More
