Very cool small walk-through exhibit sort of in the middle of nowhere. It's free which is great and worth stopping in if you happen to be driving by. I wouldn't go out of my way for it though.

This was very interesting, learning how to blow glass was great, a good place to take older kids, Lessons are given or you can just watch.

Decided to see this exhibit after touring the archaeological dig of Jamestown. Well worth the side trip. The folks who work here and share their knowledge really deliver an experience that can't be found elsewhere.

The Glass House at Jamestown is a really cool demonstration of 17th century craft. Recently I have noticed, as have others, that the items they produce are more irregular and less uniform than they have been in the past. They currently do not have a...More

The glass workers are so fun to watch. It's amazing how they transform the lump of glass into various objects within a matter of minutes. Even if you aren't into historical stuff, it's still cool to watch them in action. You can also purchase the...More

Wow! This is a most interesting and historical place. These glass blowers are so good and I learned a lot about their art. It is not your carnival or mall glass blowers. It is the ancient art being lived out. The glass pieces and amazing...More

Included in your Jamestown ticket. Loved learning how glass was created during colonial times. Great apprentices and masters creating & blowing glass and a wonderful gift shop to get very beautiful and unique pieces. Highly recommend!

I have seen handblown glass demonstrations before (it's actually not a "lost" art), but this experience was much more meaningful and memorable with the huge mud/brick oven and step-by-step narration. Being able to purchase a piece similar to the piece you just witnessed being created...More

This an interesting look at a lost art. True talent is on display for you to watch glassware to be made. This is a national park so bring your NP passport. They also sell the items they make for you to take home as souvenirs.

Have visited a number of these type places over the years and found the people at the Jamestown very informative and seemed more than happy to share their stories and talants. Very beautiful work, would suggest it for all the family to see.

You can walk around Colonial Williamsburg free. Paying for admission to the buildings is optional. Merchants square is wonderful. I am a local and love to walk around, shop an have lunch. Great places to dine and shop.

There’s no individual website for this attraction because Jamestown Glasshouse is part of the Colonial National Historical Park, a National Park Service unit comprised of Historic Jamestowne and Yorktown Battlefield. Sorry... More
