Nice, well-made and very nice museum that tells the story of a history of a Swedish leading industry. Well worth a visit.

Plenty to see, with a number of exhibits. Reasonably priced, friendly staff, bright and airy, parking in street.

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
