Venetian Glass Museum - Review
You will be welcomed to this museum that looks like a European villa, by a forest of glass trees. And if that did not leave you awestruck yet, the inside of the museum will surely have the desired effect on you. There are 500 antique pieces of Venetian Glass, out of which 100 are always on display. Along with vintage pieces from the 15th -18th centuries, there are modern pieces that use the antique glass. The best thing about the museum is that they organise glass-making classes, which will give you a better understanding of the process how these beautiful creations are made. Visitors even have the option to borrow masks and cloaks to feel more at Venice while admiring the exquisite craftsmaship.

Venetian Glass Museum, Hakone Reviews
Beautiful museum. Absolutely worth the trip (I even went in the rain and didn’t get to see everything outside). Tons of glass art from world-renowned artisans. I happened to be there on a day they held a concert inside. Phenomenal!
Out of the way quiet museum shop both outdoors and indoors.. has a cafe with live music . was a good place to spend a couple of hours before catching the train.
Don't bother paying ¥1400. Worst experience of my whole 3 month trip to Japan. The Glass is nice but not worth the entrance fee. Underwhelming. Boring. Maybe it's a novelty for the orient but I'd rather save my money and go to Europe. Would have been less disappointed had I spent $15 on eBay & the item not show up. Try the open air museum instead. Would give 0 stars if allowed.
Nice piece of glasses to see. Nothing very special but if you are around, it worth to visit. If you are lucky you can listen live violin concert from an expert. This part is the most enjoyable part. You can check the schedule of the concert from the museum's website.
Weird to say, but visiting Venice in Japan was not a bad idea. This place is beautiful and the garden is so nice and quiet. Store is a bit expensive though, but it has real wares.
