Sweden's glass tradition is renowned and the glass work shown at the museum represents the history glassmaking well. Even if you will be exploring the Crystal Kingdom, the museum deserves to be seen.

There´s a large room with glass objects through history, all the way back to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. More unique perhaps is the large and beautifully exhibited unique pieces from around Smaaland.

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.
