Great to visit and learn how glass is fashioned 100 charctors is too much. Clear and to the point is all that's necessary

The exhibit is a little difficult to appreciate if one does not speak Swedish. The objects on display are beautiful and varied, though, ranging from very old glass and crystal pieces to the very most contemporary work.

If you go the the Glass Museum the ticket also gives you entry into the Smalands Museum and Utvandrarnas Hus (all adjacent to each other). All three are not big in size but offer overall good value.

First we went to the history of Smaland section of the museum and after that we went to the glass section.
We enjoyed the glass section more. There were some very nice pieces presented.

Overall it was nice for about one hour. You could probably spent more time if you read everything, but we prefered to walk around and see what we liked.

Go here to see the history and scope of glass production in this part of Sweden - an essential part of the region's culture.
