Excellent museum and gift shop. Do not miss the glassblowing exhibit. We come back every time just to revisit this wonderful museum. Make sure you see the interactive glass marble coaster!

The Glass museum has changed since I was there 15+ years ago. The movie is worth catching as is the glass blowing demonstration. Sample of different glass produced over the years is very interesting. Plenty of parking. Enjoy!

Watch glass blowing by an artist. Enjoy the many antique glass items on display. Reasonably priced gift shop. Video on the history of glass blowing in Sandwich was very enlightening.

The Museum is quite informative on the history of Sandwich glass. I learned a lot and enjoyed the museum. Takes about an hour. Includes a glass making demo and a couple other multimedia type displays.

The sandwich Glass Museum offers glass blowing demonstrations and many examples of blown and molded glass with descriptions. It was a worthwhile stop on our visit to Sandwich, MA.

We sat on benches to watch glass being made using different techniques throughout history and in Sandwich, the oldest town on Cape Cod.
