“Interesting Specialty Museum with Great Docents”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

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.

“Not worth your money.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

The staff here are quite knowledgeable but not always friendly. If you are a collector or interested in glass than this is a spot for you. For the average folks on vacation it's a waste of time and cash.

“Beautiful glassware displays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

A very nice glass museum to visit. The guides were interesting and knowledgeable. The glass displays were beautiful and the glass blower was very interesting to watch. The admission fee is reasonable and a very nice gift shop to browse through. You can spend as much time as you would like.

“Neat place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

Neat place. I love glass collectables so this is right up my alley. They're very knowledgeable about their glass and love to talk and answer questions.
