Relaxing stroll with kids on nice path and fun at jungle gym in rear. Feed ducks, turtles and fish off gazebo over water. Well maintained overall.

Dear Sandra H, Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review. We're always so pleased to read the words "absolute treasure" in TripAdvisor reviews. And, I'd want to mention that we're working with another nonprofit environmentally-focused organization to install a nature and arts trail (re-purposing the area where the train ran). It should be open in Spring... More

The Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center is many things. It is a quality glass museum in an unusual building. It is an active glass blowing center with frequent demonstrations and narration. It is a glass and pottery studio. It is a series of art galleries and stores with changing displays and sale items from 10 cents to thousands of dollars.... More

I saw that both AAA and Trip Advisor had good things to say about this attraction. It took me about an hour from Atlantic City to get there but it was well worth it. To walk the grounds and to go into the 3 gift shops, there is no cost. To tour the museum and see the glass blowing demonstration... More

This is a great hidden gem in Cumberland county NJ, so many different activities to suit different interests. Great for kids and family, as well as adults. Lots of special events and programs, the fall festival in early October has something for everybody. Highly recommend!

I have loved this place since I was a child. Took many of my elementary classes here as a teacher! Now I go for the love of glass! Make sure you schedule a "make your own experience" with Joe Mattson! Check out the glass blowers in action!

While visiting Atlantic City's tourist booth, came across a flyer for Wheaton Village. Went to check it out, and glad I did. This place really isn't for everyone, I highly recommend it for artists or people who are very interested in glass and pottery. The reason for 4 instead of 5 stars, is the place is a little run down,... More
