Wheaton Arts is a wonderfule place to visit. Lots of shops and a working glass blowing workshop. We went in the fall and I had planned to go during the holidays but didn't make it back there this past year. I will definitely rectify that this year. I also am looking forward to going when the weather is perfect (we went a semi yucky day). so I can enjoy the outside features more.

Since my first visit where I was pleasantly surprised, my husband and I have returned a few more times. With my granddaughter twice and we had a blast both times, and the this last visit with my photography group. I arranged the trip and picked Black Friday to get us away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping. I wasn't disappointed not at all, in fact the oohs and aahs of my group as they watched the fruits and vegetables being made of glass, just made my day. Their cameras were up and shooting the entire time we were in the studio and museum. I wasn't sure I was ever going to get them out of the museum they liked it so much.

This cultural center has reinvented itself and the community continues to patronize it and promote it. Attendance at events draws from all over the Delaware Valley. The Festival of Fine Art is coming up in early October. A well curated glass museum is a highlight of the museum. And you can register to make your own glass paperweight. These are just a few of my favorite events, but there are many more. It is a little hard to find being on a neighborhood road rather than a main street. Just check the route before you go.

The Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center offers tours and viewing experiences of art glass blowing, old style, as well as a museum of glass that could only be countered by Corning. Built as an omage to T. C. Wheaton, hte founder of Wheaton Glass Company, the theme of the Center is 1880s and you will be surprised how many modern inventions existed during that historical period. There are shops selling crafts and of course glass objets d'art. Well known for glass paper weights, you can buy signed originals to start a collection. My wife and I went during an art festival featuring artists and craftmen far and near. We baough a hand made broom :), and a beautiful photograph of a fallen tree covered in moss. If you go to one of these events, plan on spending three to four hours. There will be a lot to see.
