We visited this museum on a Saturday afternoon. They have a wonderful collection of glass that were made at the various companies that were once located in Mt. Pleasant. There was a tour, with a small group of 4. The guide gave us as much information as she knew on the processes, etc. Interesting that some of the former workers still stop in and give additional insights as to what was once a thriving industry in the area. They also have some glass for sale, and you can special order items, too! Worth the visit if you're in the area!

My family attended the Mt Pleasant Glass Museum's Open House on June 16. It was my first time visiting . I am so glad that we went , and we plan on returning ! It was a very engaging and educational visit . The Mt Pleasant Glass Museum memorializes three world famous glass companies and their craftsmen that made significant contributions to this town as well as the history of glass in America : Bryce Brothers , Lenox , and L.E. Smith . The Glass industry was one of the major industries in southwestern PA , along with coal and steel. In addition to the beautiful blown and cut crystal glassware on display , you will also get to see the first headlight lenses made for the Model T , glassware used in the White House from the 1920s through modern times , antique glass making tools , old newspaper articles and photographs of the workers around the turn of the century ( many of whom were just young boys) and much more . My favorite exhibit was " a day in the life" My husband's grandfather was a glass blower and foot caster for Bryce Brothers for over 50 years , so this visit took on a personal meaning. *They offer items for sale * A research and reference library * A gift shop . *You can also attend special demonstrations and listen to guest speakers but would have to check their facebook page for upcoming events. * I would also check on hours that they are open before going

The glass industry was so important to the people of Mount Pleasant - including my family. What a great way to highlight the industry that employed so many of the residents of the area for a century.

This glass museum is currently in the process of relocating from its current downtown Mt. Pleasant location to the former Lenox Glass Centre just south of town but still on Rt. 31. The local volunteers that walk you through this history of glass are, for the most part, former glass workers in the old L.E. Smith glass factory along with other local factories. These folks are passionate about their town's glass history and are anxious to,share that passion with visitors.
