Great overview of the wide variety of beautiful and industrial glassware produced in Ohio. Who would have thunk it? Wonderful pieces beautifully displayed. The docent giving the tour was excellent, explaining so much and answering our questions. It far exceeded my expectations!

There is a resident glass blower who sets up and let's people gather to watch. It is a fascinating process. There are many glass items on exhibit.
