Even if you are not interested in glass but do have some interest in history, this museum is worth a few hours. It is beautifully organized and puts glass making in the context of the economy and society in general. And there is a surprising US connection. We highly recommend it.

A wonderful experience. The museum houses an amazing collection and the grounds are beautiful, with picnic spots and fabulous glass sculptures. Well worth a visit.

The glass sculpture garden is a pleasant stroll linking the museum with one or two of the glass-makers in the village (Poschinger and Eisch). The museum itself has a huge variety of glass, explains the history of glass making in the region as well as it's manufacture and processes. There is also an opportunity to watch some glassblowing and have a go yourselves.

Certainly a niche museum, but entirely fascinating. There are displays from ancient glass to modern sculptures. Beautiful.

Interesting to see the history of glass, from beginning to hand blown to mass production. Some beautiful creations in glass to view.
