While heading to Florida, we chose to take an interesting side trip, retirement allows this. The GPS took us a very interesting route to the glass Musesum. It was well worth the ride. The display of the various types of US made glass done over 3 centuries was fantastic. It brought back memories of my own and memories of glass... More

The Museum of American Glass has over 14,000 glass items, everything imaginable. The museum is free, but gladly accepts donations. The colorful glass is arranged by item type. I especially enjoyed seeing all the glass paper weights, bottles, and salt dishes. The museum even offers a free identification service and has a small research library. There's a small section that... More

Quite a large and interesting collection of glassware. Museum is free to the public. Check their hours as they are somewhat limited. 12:00 to 4:00 most days.

There is so much history in this museum if you are interested in the glass industry. Make sure to leave enough time to see all they have to offer. We will go back when in the area to spend more time here.

Visited with family member. It is a little hard to find. You have to look for the signs. It is located like a business in downtown. It is across from a bank. You can park right before the museum if you know where you are going or on the weekends in the bank parking lot and walk across. They have... More

My daughter and I went there just to kill a little bit of time. Upon entering it took my breath away. We spent well over an hour there but it didn't seem like we were there but a short time. The 2 ladies that greeted us were very pleasant and helpful.
