My family stopped at the Glasshouse mainly because it was raining and it looked like a cool thing to do that's indoors. The Glasshouse has a huge furnace with many openings for glass workers to create their beautiful, handmade works (that they sell!). It was...More

Very interesting. The glass blowers are fantastic. You can even purchase their unique creations in the gift store.

Went to the glasshouse today towards the end of our visit to Historic Jamestown. It was cool to see them working, but when we walked up there was no attempt to greet us or explain what they were doing/where they were in the process/what they...More

The old ovens that were on display were interesting to see, but the new operating glass house was not much to see, especially if you've seen glass blowers in the past.

After you visit the Jamestown museum this is a nice little stop about half a mile from it. They are constantly working as you are there and answer any questions. You can buy some really amazing looking pieces.

We have seen other glass workers and expected this to be a time filler. Happily, this was very interesting and the glass workers were really talented. Bowls, vases, figures. Watch them go.

Nothing interesting or worth viewing. Definitely needs to change the name- definitely not a glass house-- It is a glass maker. Advertised as gods gift to Jamestown--not worth it. Total waste of time.

The glasshouse was a true replica of the 1608 Jamestown glasshouse and all of the staff were friendly. They answered any questions we had about the glassblowing process and the items for sale. Definitely a must see while in the area.

We enjoyed watching the glass blowers at work and talking to them. The parking lot is a short walk (3 minutes) from the glasshouse. Definitely worth a quick stop. I thought the prices on the final products were fairly marked.

Historic Jamestown is part of Colonial National Park, part of the National Park Service, so an admission fee or a National Park Pass is required. A mile or so away is the Jamestown Settlement, which includes a recreation of... More
