The GoggleWorks has so much to offer: movies not being shown elsewhere; local artwork on display; gift shop with beautiful items from local artists; various workshops, etc. Well worth a trip into the city.

A smart use of space in this vacant industrial building. Great art exhibits (they even show independent movies) and artists studios in this 5-level building. Grab a cup of coffee and wander around.

The Goggle is a great place to view all types of art by all ages. I especially like the watercolor paintings by our own neighbors in the Reading area. There is always an art display from one of the schools. You can also take several art classes from painting to glass blowing.

What a great experience for our Top and Mid Level Managers to blow glass and paint. Scott in the Glass Blowing Studio is phenomenal! Working with James Pastore was a pleasure! You should definitely get your lunch catered by Johanny from Mi Casa Su Casa!

Went for an art show in October. Would have loved to have stayed in town just to soak in the rest of the building.

Most of the complex was closed but the film theater was a great small venue to see a movie. Most of the artist studios were closed on Monday.
