Beautiful history, well paced detailed displays, and live demonstration by artisans. The gift shop has local artists as well as on-site glass art in all price ranges. Wonderful for children and adults. Don't miss the artist demonstration.

I went with a group of people on a Diamond Tour bus. We were returning from Martha's Vineyard. This is a beautiful Glass Museum. Friendly staff. At specified times there is a glass blowing demonstration. I enjoyed the Museum. I recommend you visit if interested.

Interesting to learn the history of this type of glassware. Although I am not into this kind of stuff it was interesting none the less.

There is a wonderful display of centuries of artistic glass, as well as a demonstration by a young man of considerable talent to create a beautiful glass piece in front of you.
