For a small, niche museum, the Sandwich Glass Museum puts on a good show. The entry fee is pretty reasonable compared to most of the museums on the cape, and because of the unique subject matter it's unusually interesting and informative. I especially recommend sitting in on one of the glass blowing demonstrations. The woman who did ours was very engaging and gave the audience a lot of entertaining information while she made a colorful glass fish right before our eyes. The 20-plus-minute movie is a little hokey, but contains some interesting historical tidbits and a bit of Disney-style niceties like walls opening up into another "room" where a different historical "person" talks to you. There are similar (low-budget) animatronics in a couple of the other museum exhibits. They don't necessarily add much to the experience, but it's nice that the museum puts forth the effort, and younger visitors will probably find them amusing. There are a huge number of glass pieces on display, and a lot of interesting photos and artifacts from the Sandwich glass industry. The three-minute long audio presentation on the history of candles, lamps, and light bulbs is particularly fascinating. Overall the museum exceeded our expectations and is a worthwhile stop if you find yourself in the Sandwich area.
