“A COLORFUL TRIP INTO HISTORY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We always plan a "field trip" during our annual September Cape Cod visit. Our destination: The Sandwich Glass Museum. Sandwich is a delightful New England town. The museum was very easy to locate right on the main drag, Main Street, directly opposite the Old Town Hall. Admission is very reasonable at $4. We chose to go first to the glass blowing demonstration. It was very interesting but would have been enhanced with the use of a microphone, as it's located very near the noisy front entrance. Next, we seated ourselves in the Theater which presented an interesting insight to life in the 1600's thru early 1800's. The four of us spent the rest of our time wandering and admiring the beautiful, clever artforms made of glass throughout the museum.

“Worth the Trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

They show the past and the present. They do a great job in telling the history and also have a presentation to show how they make the glass. Worth the trip!

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

As a lover of antique glassware, I was in heaven at this museum. Hundreds of beautiful pieces are on display with extensive historical descriptions. The video and glassblowing demonstration were educational as well. This is a fascinating place!

“Beautiful pieces on display - information exhibit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

In addition to the glass blower they have a movie and other displays that are sort of animated - telling the story of the people who were involved in glass making.
