It has multiple rooms of historic glass pieces. There is a furnace and a guy giving a demonstration on glass blowing. There is a film showing the history of glass making in Sandwich. At the end there are some new glass items for sale.

We watched both the movie and the glass blowing demonstration and then perused the many exhibits of glass. Really enjoyed it but couldn't afford anything in the gift shop.
