The best part about the museum was the demonstration on blowing glass. It was really interesting to watch and very informative. The museum had a ton of glass and it was a unique experience.

Leave the kids at home so you can look at the glass and not worry about them getting bored or breaking something. They do have someone blowing glass every hour so you can view the process.

It has multiple rooms of historic glass pieces. There is a furnace and a guy giving a demonstration on glass blowing. There is a film showing the history of glass making in Sandwich. At the end there are some new glass items for sale.
