The art of glass making (and especially here) you see not only worldclass pieces of art but also the techniques on how they were made. If your good they'll make you your own custom glass jug. They do have better examples for sale and... More

The glassmaking demo is fantastic and you can even sign up to make your own paperweight (or vase, I think). If I need a unique gift I can find one in one of their shops. Their annual Festival of Fine Craft is well worth attending, too.

This venue is the site of many outdoor events including craft fairs, eco fairs, Fire apparatus shows and more. During these events the entrance fee is usually waived. There is a glass museum and live glass blowing during most of the events.

I love to come to the various events held here, I went as a child and now I bring my children. Or even just to come feed the ducks in the summer. The museum has a lot of neat glass work and the stores are adorable. It's a nice place to visit for a quiet peaceful day.

Very nice place to spend an afternoon. The artists were very happy to share their knowledge. The general store was very cute with lots of nostalgia

This place is always a treat to visit. It is so interesting to watch them blow glass and other things. They also have a playground on site, which makes it nice for the traveler who has kids.

I liked the ease of getting there. Watching the glass workers made for a fast paced day. The glass exhibits stirred the imagination. I enjoyed the day with my wife .
