Reviewed March 9, 2017 via mobile

Learned about the numerous Ohio glass manufacturing companies as well as a tour of the unbelievable blown glass. The highlight of the tour was the glass blowing demo, watched as a stunning vase created. Thanks Mike, your piece was beautiful

Changing displays of local art glass, a movie on the history of glass making in the US and in Lancaster, and live glass blowning demonstrations. VERY complete and enjoyable.

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!

Fascinating tour.

Great glass collection and history.

We did not go on tour of factory as running out of time.

Lancaster is a typical quaint small town in Ohio.The people are friendly too. The glass museum gives people the opportunity to do glass blowing with the help of a talented artisan. This ensures that your work of art is something you can be proud to display. I went with a friend and we each made an ornament. For under $30.00 (plus shipping) we had an educational & thrilling experience learning about glass blowing and making a beautiful ornament. We got to pick the colors we wanted and there were plenty of examples to help make the decision. The hardest part is trying to decide. Our teacher did a demo and explained the process and then guided through the whole thing. She was great! With her help we were able to easily make our ornaments. Since they need to be tempered overnight, we elected to have them mailed to us the next day. They arrived promptly in 2 days. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone that loves to create things but lacks the time to perfect the skill to do it alone. You won't be sorry if you set aside an hour or so to try this!
