Be sure to stop here...lovely glass displays, though much smaller than I would have imagined, given the rich history of glass making in the area! The gift shop is a treat....hand blown glass objects at reasonable prices and Anchor Hocking overruns......welll worth a stop

My wife and I needed to burn and hour or two before our flight. We stopped by the Ohio Glass Museum. The tour was educational and the glass blowing exhibition was very interesting. We had a fun time with the tour guide. This was a tour that my wife and I talk about.

Lancaster is one of the cities of Southeast Ohio where glass was king. Home of Anchor Hocking, Lancaster has always had a tie to the glass-making industry. The Ohio Glass Museum sits on Main Street, about 1 block from the center of the city, and provides demonstrations, exhibitions, and valuable glass examples for collectors. It is our own local version... More

We visited the glass museum & as a nurse, I really appreciated all the medical type exhibits. We watched the artist blow glass into an ornament. She was very good at explaining what she was doing as she did it, then opened up for questions from the audience. Fun visit. They also let you take classes to learn how to... More

While small by comparison well worth the visit. They have ever changing exhibits about glass, how it's made and its uses. There is a glass-blowing demonstration towards the back of the museum. Would be an interesting visit for kids or anyone interested in glass blowing. Small and wouldn't take more than an hour or two to visit.

I took a glass blowing class and blew a glass heart shaped paper weight for Valentine's day. My husband took the glass with me and we picked up our "hearts" a couple days latter after they had come out of the oven and cooled.

Great museum about industrial glass - but unfortunately that's not incredibly interesting. They start you with a video (which was informative) then a docent takes you around. I found myself wanting to "move on" much quicker than the tour that was given - now this is not to say that you won't find anything interesting to see, but it's just... More

I visited the Ohio Glass Museum in August 2015 and was quite surprised by this great little museum. At first, I will admit I was a bit perplexed as to why I was looking at display cases filled with TV tubes, medical equipment, and tail light fixtures, until I realized that the history of glass encompasses more than just vases...

We took the glassblowing class and made ornaments. My son is 10, and he was even able to do it with the help of the instructor. This is something we will definitely not forget.

An Art Deco style museum housing glass exhibits that change periodically with themed glass items. There are volunteers who are available to explain the exhibits and lead you through the different areas of the museum such as a movie showing the history of glass making in the Lancaster area, which is the home of glass manufacturer, Anchor Hocking, an100 year...
