The young man who did the demo was so informative, funny and fun that everyone in the audience loved it. Glass blowing is an art form that is fascinating and unusual. That makes it very interesting to people of all ages. Walking through the museum is nice depending on your interest level. The gift shop is beautiful whether buying something... More

Had a great time. Was a great learning experience for the whole family. Kids had a blast even had a scavenger hunt for them to do on the whole Museum tour.

The glass museum was full of information, all presented in engaging ways. We were able to see a glassblowing demo, which was really cool for the kids, and gave us new appreciation for the art. The museum has a scavenger hunt for kids, which allows adults to enjoy the museum slowly while the kids are occupied. They even get a... More

Really enjoyed the live glass blowing demonstration. Was interesting and entertaining. Neat to see all the different kinds of glass and history of glass. Worth a stop. Not probably too interesting for younger children. More an adult or older teen attraction.

We were looking for something fun to do on a very hot day. We had had enough of the beach and headed to this museum to take a break from the sun. I'm not big into glass or glassware but much to my surprise, the museum did a great job of educating us on the history of glass making during... More

It's only $2 for kids to go to this museum. Beautiful. Such a neat perspective on the business of glass-making. Great video and audio shorts throughout the museum.

Perfect rainy day activity, nice info on the history of glass in Sandwich. We easily spent 2 pleasant hours here when it was too rainy to be outside. I recommend it.

We stopped into the Sandwich Glass Museum with our 2 girls (ages 8 & 9). They had "treasure hunt" for the kids to do as you walk through the museum. The girls loved it and at the end they brought the map back up to the front desk and received a "treasure" (a little bag of marbles)! There was a... More
