This place has a lot of talent. The make your own glass studio is an awesome experience for all ages. The glass blowing and the flamework are a must experience. The glass market leaves you amazed.

Don't bypass the local artisans' work in the gift shop and be sure to look on the bottom of the object you are buying, to make sure it's not been made in China. That was a real shocker.

What a great museum. It included ancient glass up to and including modern day pieces. There were exhibits and hands on classes you could take. A gift shop at the end of thr tour included items made there and purchased from other companies.

Thank you for your review. We hope you had time to watch many of the demonstrations as well as make your own glass. Perhaps a handmade pumpkin? Thanks again!

Was sceptical about going to the museum. Boy was I wrong! The place is amazing, very educational. I learned so many interesting facts about the glass industry.
The gift shop is overpriced though...
