Did you know the Egyptians made glass over 2000 years ago? Actually the Sandwich glass factory was the first to make pressed glass, which was the beginning of mass production which of course the ordinary man could afford. The founder was quite the rebel at the time, but soon was copied everywhere. Real Sandwich glass was only made until the 1880s, so if you don't see it here in this museum, its probably a reproduction. Everything is behind glass, so don't worry about bringing kids, they might enjoy the glassblower. Have Fun!
