Very beautiful and interesting place to tour and see hand blown glass being made. It's like stepping back in time. Intricate pieces, fun pieces, art and functionality. Lots of colors to choose from, makes excellent gifts. Tour is self guided and free.

This gift shop has a large selection of glass items that are handmade on site. Many are one-of-a-kind and are beautiful and unique. If you are in the area, I highly recommend.

My cousins from MI have to visit Blenko everytime they come to visit. Sadly, my cousin passed July 4, 2016. I am sending her daughters Blenko in the new Pink Ice vases in her memory. I can't wait to visit again. I will always think of my cousin Gladys when I'm there.

Stopped by on a lark. They have some pretty products but the price reflects the fact they are hand blown. The self guided tour lets you watch a couple of different products being made. I love the skill involved in glass blowing so I recommend. I like to support Made in America so I purchased a few items. Very old... More

Just amazing what they do here. Did not find any Carnival Glass like they used to have at Gibson so wish they would add but just beautiful. Bought a piece to take back to TX with me and couldn't be happier. Amazing showroom of custom stuff they do.

This is a nice place to see if you are in the area. You can watch while they do the actual glass blowing and forming of the pieces. There is a video about how the company was started. You can buy different glass items in the gift shop.

Went to Blenko Glass today so my 10-year old granddaughter could see them at work. I didn't really think she'd be all that thrilled with it but I was wrong. She was glued to the observation rail! Told me she wanted to learn how to do it (after telling me she was going to go to college to become a... More

Blenko has a great shop for beautiful handmade glass, and a museum which offers a guided or self-tour of the factory. We visited on the way to Churchill Downs and were glad we did. My wife's grandmother had some beautiful glass pieces that she bought in the 1930's and we always wanted to see where they were made. Watching the... More

what a marvelous step back in time, easy to just get mesmerized by all the handcraftsmen and their skill at handling globs of molten glass. really adds a new meaning to how skills and labor was originally organized and why.

The craftsman are great. You get to see glassblowing up close. Ask questions. Maybe get to blow your own personal piece. Very friendly hands on. Tour is good, check out the museum. Buy from the gift shop. A lot of things they sat are seconds are actually better then are the higher priced firsts.
