“Even nicer than expected! ”

Millersburg Glass Museum
Ranked #7 of 17 things to do in Millersburg
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 March 2017 via mobile

I really wasn't sure what to expect before visiting this museum, but my family and i were very pleasantly surprised and impressed! There was a docent. She had us watch an interesting 2-3 min video about the founding of Millersburg Glass. Then she took us into a room filled with a few of the beautiful glass creations. It's hard to believe these were sold at 5 & 10 cent stores back in the day! Mr. Fenton was quite the artist! The whole experience lasted about 45 min. It's $5/person, unless you buy a combo ticker with the Victorian House (i believe you have to buy the combo ticket from the Victorian House). The docent was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. She taught us a lot about Millersburg Glass and encouraged us to be on the lookout in thrift stores! This attraction is wheelchair accessible.

Very educational. Learned about John Fenton, the materials used in making glassware, and how much it is worth now. Located right next to the Victorian House. Our guide was very informed.

My husband and I decided to visit the glass museum on Sunday since we knew almost everything in Amish Country was closed. We had seen in several brochures that it was open on Sunday. We walked up from downtown (fortunately a bright sunny warmish February day) only to discover that they were closed during the months of January and February. It would have been nice to know that little tidbit. We did have a nice walk and we happened to meet an adorable English bulldog on the way, but....

Even if you are not a Millersburg Glass collector, you will enjoy this beautiful museum with the magnificent glass. Shards of glass are also on display to give the visitor a look-see into the past. A volunteer will guide you through and answer questions you may have or to share your experience with collecting. The Victorian House is located next door so you can do both tours easily in one afternoon. Enjoy!

This is a Sunday-friendly museum in Amish country. We toured the Victorian House next door and the museum. If you enjoy the history and art of glass making, this is worth the time. The Guide spent two hours with me on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Parking is free. Signage could be a little better, slightly confusing. The Museum does not front on the street, but has a side entrance.
