“New Glass Museum is worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Wellington is now home to three museums, the newest being the NDGA National Glass Museum, located at 117 S Washington Avenue. The NDGA is a national organization comprised of collectors of American-made glassware, and the organization has been accumulating a collection for some time with the intention of opening a museum. That objective was realized in September 2012.

The museum is located in a storefront on the main street of Wellington, and the front window is decorated by various glass collecting clubs from around the country. Once you enter, you will see rows of cases containing glassware made in America from the 19th century nearly all the way to the present. Most items are identified as to manufacturer (and pattern, if known) and there are several groupings of like items (e.g. pitchers, stemware). There are some tools of the trade displayed, and there is a library for visitors to use (on premises).

The all-volunteer staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and there is a gift shop where you can purchase glass, t-shirts, and other items. The volunteers will try to answer any questions you might have as you wander past the cases. Admission is free, but donations are welcomed.
