This museum's exhibit of Steuben glass is absolutely the best! Many extremely rare Steuben pieces are shown; you will only see them here. Their American glass collection is also wonderful. Nice town and nice people.

Great place to stop and see. Everything that was or is made from glass - there is an example here. Free admission but you can leave a donation (worth it).

Doesn’t seem like much from the outside, but the museum is filled with examples of just about every type of glass made. Very nostalgic in some cases when you remember what family members had in their homes before. Took about 90 minutes to get through...More

Much more than we expected. Who knew glass was made in so many places in the US in so many different colors.
