Great skill from the glass blowers and nice that recycled Coca-Cola bottles are used for making all the objects. We bought six gin tumblers which were quirky and good value. Had we trusted the baggage handlers on the way back we would have bought much...More

Its a good idea to check the production schedule of the refinery before your visit. When we arrived the gents were making vases which was very interesting to watch, but as we were there just after 11am they were going on lunch at 12pm. We...More

Everything is made from recycles glass, although the selection is poor. Interesting to watch the glass being blown, although health and safety for the employees is debatable.

We visited the glass factory for 1/2 hour and could see a beautiful elephant and peacock being made from molten glass.Experience of a lifetime! The glass items being sold were good value for money!

Nice place with an original idea and concepts. The people working there are very talented and skillful and looking at them work is a mind blowing experience. The prices for certain items are a bit high but they are worth it.

Visited this week as we were in the area. It cost Rd 100 each and is just a small museum with very little interest and an uninspiring shop. Only go if you're desperate to fill some time.

Yes they do post overseas using a courier service, but the cost was prohibitive when I looked into it
