If you like glass, art, beauty, design, history, or the avant-garde, go visit the museum at Wheaton Arts Center in southern NJ. Amazingly large collection, well-displayed, surveying glass from ancient times up through very modern. BTW, the shops across the street have some lovely and affordable glass jewelry as well as some wild and expensive glass sculpture. Enjoy!

i have been coming here for 30 years. I love the history of the village and the special events. The fall arts festival is not to be missed. Another special time is Christmas. The gift shop offers many hand made artisan items. A great way to spend a day in any seasons. A hidden gem in south Jersey.

Within the Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center is the Museum of American Glass. The entire history of glass in the South New Jersey and Philadelphia areas is presented with grace and loving care. Objects and meaningful history from the days of the Delaware tribes, through the Colonial period, Revolutionary War to contemporary times are displayed in a manner that will... More

WheatonArts, previously known as Wheaton Village, has been in Millville, New Jersey for many years. Over time, they've added many things to attract visitors. There are classes, festivals and family friendly activities. South Jersey used to have a tremendous number of glass factories due to the sandy soil in the area. Sadly, most of these factories have closed or moved... More

We were looking for something to do on a rainy day. This place is somewhat out of the way, but worth the trip. Bigger complex than I expected. There are studios for glass blowing, pottery, glass forming by torch, paper making, etc. there are artisans at each studio making beautiful articles for sale. They will happily explain the fascinating processes... More

I've been visiting Wheaton Village since I was a kid and continue to bring my children there. Admission to the village is free but you must pay if you want to see the art museum and glass blowing demonstrations, etc. If you like to shop and like unique gifts, there are a few shops where you can buy paperweights and...

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
