If you love glass, this is a must-see. The museum's collection of glass is extensive, beautifully displayed, and well-documented. That said, we were not impressed with the multi-media presentation offered in the auditorium. We were hoping for a concise history of Sandwich Glass. It was not. Instead, it was a story of the era leading up to the opening of the glass factory, told though the perspective of a young boy and other locals; it seemed rather disjointed and rambling. As history buffs that love atmospheric storytelling, we thought this was rather poorly done. We would advise to skip this and head straight for the glass exhibits. Don't miss the two darkened side galleries; they provide interesting narration supported by lighting effects. Please note that glass is NOT manufactured here anymore. There is a glassblowing demonstration but glass production is done at Pairpoint Glass in neighboring Sagamore. (Pairpoint is well worth a visit; you will see glassmaking in action, and it is free.)
