Reviewed November 19, 2011

We really loved the Sandwich Glass Museum. We were on a tight schedule and I would have loved to have spend more time looking at every single thing. Nice demonstation on glass blowing. Beautiful items in the gift shop. Favorite thing - the special exhibit. Don't miss this museum!

“Genuinely interesting, and much larger than expected.”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

We went to the Glass Museum at the recommendation of our innkeepers (the 1750 Inn at Sandwich Center is directly across the street from the Glass Museum). The "film" (combination video and hologram) is excellent and provides a good foundation for viewing the rest of the exhibits. We were disappointed that we missed the glassblowing exhibition, as we had a bit of time between the film and the glassblowing, so wandered into the museum exhibits, became absorbed, and missed the glassblowing. The exhibits were excellent and well worth it.

“Nice little historical gem in Cape Cod”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

The museum was interesting not only because of the wonderful exhibits, movies, the demonstration on how glass is made, but also because of everything it tells you about the history of glass making in Cape Cod, how it started, why they chose to set up in Cape Cod, some of the challenges they encountered along the way.
