My wife and I are both glass fans and during a visit to Columbus, we decided on a side trip to Lancaster to see the Glass Museum and surrounding attractions. We didn't actually realize before arriving that the glass is almost entirely serving and table pieces and collectibles. We had been expecting more art glass, but in fact the museum was a lot of fun, with very friendly and forthcoming guides. The movie, on the history of glassmaking in central Ohio was very well done, and the displays of Ohio glass were very well curated and described. A nice touch was display cases that had a taste of previous shows. We visited the glass-making shop and had a very nice demonstration of glass-blowing. In the shop, we bought a paperweight made by each of their resident artisans. A charming, off-the-beaten-path excursion.
