“Out of the way but something for everyone, kids will have fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Obscure location in Baoshan may not be the ideal place but make the effort and you will be pleasantly surprised at the sophistication and variety. The history of glass is told through interactive displays with explanations in English and Chinese.

Check the times of glass blowing demonstrations, you can re-enter the museum to finish your tour later if it is half way through. Then there is glass painting for kids and glass fusion activities making this a family museum.

Cafe on the 2nd floor offers drinks and snacks at very reasonable prices and there a gift shop to spend any extra money in your pocket. We spent about 3 or 4 hours in total without doing the glass fusion but we will go back and do that another day.
