Sandwich Glass Museum Reviews & Ratings
I have always loved and have had a fascination for the art of glass blowing! A visit to the Sandwich Glass Museum was so interesting and informative. I witnessed an actual demonstration of creating a little vase, and saw displays of some of the most beautiful glass creations! This museum was outstanding, to say the very least. There was a beautiful bowl, lamp, vase, decoration, etc. of various colors, whole, swirled, drizzled, dripped, spun, beyond description, so many, hard to determine which I loved more, wanting to possess all of them! This museum was very unique. If you appreciate the unusual, pay attention to details, then you absolutely will want to visit the Sandwich Glass Museum. Make sure to give yourself time to peruse the beautiful glass artifacts, for you don't want to rush through this museum. They have restrooms and a gift shop. Free parking out front.
Very surprised I really enjoyed our visit. They have interactive exhibits which adds to the interest of their beautiful glassware. They also have hourly exhibits of glassblowing which is very informative.
Neat place to see. They have a glass blower and lots of old and new glass to see. Even if this is not your thing it's worth the trip
Burning glass presentation very good. Glass art displays were mesmerizing. Brought back memories.
Excellent glass blowing demonstration. Gave all the reasons why it was done that way. Explained the kiln. Very interesting. Many, many examples of glass blowing art.
