Didn't spend long here as I walked in towards the end of the day but caught the end of a presentation by one of the glassmakers. The cone itself, a chimney to a dozen ovens, houses exhibitions and demonstrations by artisans. Very interesting. I would recommend for older children Key Stage 2 +) and families/ photogrpahers, etc. Probably good for... More

This place is really not suited to a children’s Easter trail, and I don’t really understand why they do it as I don’t think it was a positive experience for anyone – us doing it, the staff, or the other customers – especially those in the coffee shop. We arrived to do the ‘family’ trail, advertised in a number of... More

Thank you for your review. We were upset that your experience was not an enjoyable one. Our Duck trails are very popular with many regular visitors coming back each school holiday. All studios and the Coffee shop (which are independent) enjoy visitors popping into their studios looking for the ducks. We will remind all staff that full instructions are given... More

The highlight of our visit was the coffee house although the staff were very busy the service I recieved was impeccable. The food we ordered was fantastic value for money and such good sized portions. This will defiantly make me become a regular visitor for a coffee and something to eat. Fantastic couldn't fault it 😀

This is an absolutely excellent museum, showing how glass was made in the 19th and 20th Century. Lots of interesting displays and a good shop as well. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Lots of fun activities to do, pottery making, watching glass being made, and having a look around the cone. A great gift shop and lots of marbles (for you collectors) and in all, a great day out. Unfortunately, a lot of the activities are closed on weekends, so that is sometimes a let down. ☆☆☆☆

Visited on Friday in February so not too busy. The main feature is the cone itself which is very impressive. There was a glassblowing demo going on too which kept us amused for 15 minutes. Lots of workshops and studios and a coffee shop.

Always an interesting and informative outing. An ideal starting point for discovering more about Stourbridge's glass industry. There are also fascinating canal walks from here.

Kids love the activities at the red cone, The cafeis quaint but £7.25 for 2 pieces of cake, glass of pop n a coffee is expensive. The museum is well worth a visit

We visited on a Saturday which is definitely the best day of the week because you can see a glass blowing demonstration, which is very interesting indeed. The highlight, however, has to be the excellent cafe. We had delicious homemade soup & latte coffee, both of which were piping hot. The service was very quick & friendly.
