I am an avid hunter of sea glass on any beach. This was a very informative museum of the Fort Bragg sea glass and included pieces from around the world. Lots of video to watch on Ft. Bragg history.

It’s a small museum/gift store but is well laid out, interesting and informative. You learn what sea glass is, where to find it and how it got there in the first place. No admission charge, but a small donation is appreciated.

Very worth a visit, its free and doesn't take too long but is packed full of information that explains the phenomenon and history of the glass beach.

This is the stuff that if you could be there first, you could be bringing home! Nice Sea glass. I think they have a legend about it. If you find Sea glass, something special will happen.

We wish we dropped by before going to the actual Glass Beach. Captain Cass gave us great tips about the different sites (Site #2 has more to see), the rules regarding keeping the glass, and "seeding" more glass chunks on the beach. As a former...More
