  • This was our 1st visit to this museum. It was absolutely stunning to see the work!! There was some serious detail on a lot of the pieces.. I had no idea there were so many clever artists with glass. Lol the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The gift shop was great!! And the bridge outside is stunning and remarkable!! There are no other words for that for the detailed beautiful works at this museum. We will definitely be returning.
  • The bridge to the museum is decorated with colorful glass artwork. The museum host glassblowing events, one of which we got the chance to watch. It was cool to see how glass is made. That said, their glass exhibitions are very interesting too, and worth taking a look around. There awaits a presentation of so many different glass artwork variations and styles. The experience is very inspiring and educational.
