If you like early to mid-century glass and are in the Cambridge area, the museum is worth a visit. The staff (all volunteers) is knowledgeable, friendyl and helpful. The exhibits are enlightening and the glass is glorious.

Although a small museum, its collection of locally made decorative and elegant glass is first rate in quantity and quality. It reminds of a time when local industries were at the heart of the communities where they were located. Much to see, much to learn.

We're glad you found the museum! The vintage movie helps everyone understand the handmade glassmaking process before they tour the glass display. Thank you for visiting and we hope to see you again!

Wonderful museum with many fine examples of Cambridge glass on display. The short film at the start of the tour was informative. We had our own docent to lead our tour and she provided lots of wonderful information and answered all our questions!
