This small museum is packed with information, and is clearly a labor of love. We watched the 30-minute video about Sandwich and then plunged into the galleries. Room after room elucidates the importance of the glass factory to Sandwich's prosperity, a rich history lesson in...More

The demonstration of how to make glass was the main thing here, everything else was okay but this was great. It only takes a couple of minutes depending on what they are making and your eyes do not go anywhere else while this is happening....More

As soon as I heard glass blowing demonstration, I was ready to go to the Sandwich Glass Museum. The demonstration was interesting to watch and the glowing, molten glass was beautiful. The apprentice who made a hollow whale tail showed us how the color is...More

I have to say that my wife – but not I – is impressed with glass objects, but I went along just the same. However, the glass blower demonstration which is live by the way blew me away. The young man was obviously very talented....More

We been there before couple years ago, memories were good so we visited again. Good history and art lessons for everyone. Kids loved the scavenger hunt and glass blowing show. Definitely worth seeing. Exhibits are beautiful!

Interesting place to visit if you are around Playmoth or going to cape-cod. They have live demo on how to craft glass articles, which is shown once in every couple of hours or so, worth watching.

Informative demonstration, varied collection from different time periods. Nice little movie about the town itself and how the industry came to be

The self-guided tour offers you plenty of interesting works of glass, history, and storytelling. There are two interactive exhibits that are extremely well done. Don’t miss the movie or glass blowing demonstrations. Even my two teenagers - ages 13 and 15 - were engaged.

This little bit of local history was done well. There was a glass blowing demo and an extensive collection of all kinds of glassware. If you like glass, go. The gift shop showcased some beautiful items but were very pricey.

Sorry for the delay. I agree. A 15-20 minute visit at most and that’s if you ask which piece of glass is their favorite in every room.
