Take the time, about 45 min and see truly the best exhibit of American made glass...so many manufacturers! Kind staff who encourage you to enjoy.

Just a tremendous amount of glass, and a nice research library to boot. If you're a glass collector, it's well worth the visit.

Very nice place to stop to get local honey and veggies. Also you can watch them blow glass and pick up a nice piece of glass along the way.

The best thing was the history and display of marbles. Outside of that, I didn't see anything real exciting there. I have seen a better display of items in an antique store.

As we were visiting Weston, we were looking places to visit and we saw this museum. Inside, it's beautiful! There are tons of glass projects in there! Each one is gorgeous to look at! There's a lot of history in the museum and how glass was made! Nice place too look at while there and it's free!

I knew of this museum, and also knew I lived too far away to make that special trip required to visit. My luck was we were passing by on our vacation when I realized Weston W was just off our route. Free visit with a chance to donate you should not pass this up!! Too many manufacturers and pieces to... More

If you find yourself in Weston WV, there are a several places that I recommend checking out. The first place is the Museum of American Glass and the Bank across from the Museum. The Museum takes about 30 - 45 minutes to walk through as you look at all the different types of glass items as well as the sale... More

Visited to kill time. This place is good for history buffs that are interred in glass. Very old and many displays. People were very nice. There was a little gift shop.
