This is definitely a place to check out if you're in Skagway. We had a brilliant morning making a glass bauble and can't wait until we receive the finished pieces in the post! Really informative and fun class!

A TripAdvisor recommendation encouraged us to visit the gardens. They are in need of some care with many of the gardens overgrown, and uncared for. The model engine was broken as were fences which had old tape draped across them and several of the little...More

Not many places that you can create your own Alaska memory to take home. Beautiful gardens,. The glass blowers are true artesians, their creations are sold in the gift shop or you can create your own glass ball. So worth the time spent there. The...More
