This was expensive for what you get to see, not so if you want to visit the other stuff but if you are only interested in the glass it was £9. Make sure you go upstairs as there is more up there. The English was a bit limited but I still enjoyed it. I was there for less than an hour.

This region is famous for its glass making which is why we came here. The museum is a great introduction. They show the processes by which glass creations are made. They feature many of the artists and their work, There is a special exhibition about the glass works of Kosta Boda which is now celebrating its 225th anniversary! There is also a lovely gift shop. I feel a lot more prepared for our day in the countryside at various glass works places.

Loved this museum with interesting displays, a wonderful gift shop , and a lovely Japanese restaurant. Have given and enjoyed Kosta Boda and Orrefors for many years, so it was really fun to learn more about their history.....
