The glass blowing demonstration was neat to watch and the movie was educational. I liked how some of the history was interactive the way it was presented and not boring or dry. The gift shop I would have liked to have seen some bigger glass...More

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.

Absolutely riveting! Have never seen how glass is fired in a furnace. The artisan handled the melted glass as though he had made these beautiful works of art all his life. Absolutely riveting presentation.
