We went on a free Friday event. Although it was very crowded we still enjoyed it.They had a scavenger hunt for the children with a small gift at the end. They did a demo of glass blowing which was very interesting. The person doing the demo was very good. We enjoyed the whole day.

We also watched the film on the Sandwich... More

The glass blowing demonstration was phenomenal, as was the entire museum. Well worth taking the time to absorb this incredible display. A detailed history of glass making on Cape Cod ~ dating back to the 1800s. Many pieces illustrate the processes as they became ever more intricate. "The 12 Days of Christmas" is the current exhibit ~ Excellent. Christmas Trees... More

One gets a greater appreciation for all types of glass...and glass blowers...when one visits this museum on Cape Cod. Room after room of interesting pieces challenge one to learn more about the industry that made "Sandwich Glass" famous and collectible.

Loved the demonstration. Very interesting. Beautiful glass work made in front of us. Loved touring the showrooms of different styles, class and colors. A must see if in the area. This was a day trip on our way to Boston.

A very good museum full of the history of glass making on Cape Cod. Stories of the owners, workers, the technology they used. A craftsman is on site doing glass blowing demonstrations.

Love this small, intimate museum. There are at least five things to do here. 1) view film about the history of the Sandwich glass factory and area glassmaking. 2) watch a glass artist produce a vase or bottle. Studio has viewing benches and artist is close enough to ask questions. 3) tour the glass galleries and learn about pressed and... More
