  • Took our grandkids to the museum and we all enjoyed the glass blowing demonstration and the educational film about Sandwich Glass Company. Lots of interesting displays , too.  more »
  • We have wanted to go here for years and finally got around to it. I wish we had done it earlier. Beautiful glass of every color, size and shape. Best of all was the glass blowing. Wonderful visit.  more »

  • It was more interesting than I thought it might be. The glass blowing demonstration was awesome.
  • Really cool demonstration and historical video. We were hesitant to spend $27 each for 3 adult tickets because we weren't sure if it would be worth it, but I assure you it was! A very cool must-see learning experiece, this was.
