Tucked away Gem

I'm shocked by the huge amounts of glass with historical significance in this small town, The collections donated and displayed are absolutely amazing.

Absolutely loved this place. Was in Weston to see the Trans Allegheny Asylum and we stumbled upon this museum. So glad we did. The amount of glass and the various collections were amazing. From the way the glass was displayed to the types of glass and all the beautiful colors it was visually very appealing. And to top it off... More

A wonderful representation of the glass made in the eastern part of our country from the late 1800s to today. If you love glass, you will not want to miss this free museum. It contains some gorgeous pieces. It also has a library with lots of books for research and a gift shop where you can make purchases.

This is a small town gem. The Glass Industry in Central WV was a thriving industry till 1980 when the U.S. Government lifter the import glass tax. These local volunteers have amassed a thorough collection from glass factories all over WV and Eastern USA. The colors are gorgeous and many, many unusual pieces. You will enjoy your visit ( free)...

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
