Owner description: Visit the Museum of American Glass in West Virginia to see a huge collection of brilliant colored and sparkling crystal glass by dozens of American manufacturers from 1860 to the present. We currently have around 20,000 items on display, including the 2nd largest collection of Steuben art glass in the world, the National Marble Museum, and our Lady Jane stained glass doll house. We have a self guided tour available, and a research library with over 1,500 books. Please call in advance to schedule a guided tour for large groups.

If you like or love glass make this a must stop on your next vacation. The museum has one of the most extensive collections of glass made in the USA that I have ever seen. I've loved glass since I was in high school, but I've never seen a collection like this. It's telling that their annual glass conference draws some of the major names among authors of glass guidebooks as well as glass artists who support the museum's goal. It's in a very modest building -- an old department store -- but what's inside will take your breath away.
