Nice variety of displays, with knowledgeable docent. Friendly people. Displays rotate. Nice video background, too. Large gift shop with good prices, to boot. They have glass blowing and other classes, too.

Quite interesting glass museum - specializing in glass companies from Ohio. Not a large place but some great displays, very nice and attentive staff. They have a good glass library also. Definitely worth going to if in the area of Lancaster,. OH

This is a well appointed museum. It has many varieties of Ohio glass. Don’t miss the glass blowing exhibit. We have seen several demos and this one by Theresa was the best experience. If I were closer, I’d take a class there.

Some places are just plain fun- and the Ohio Glass Museum is one. So many past exhibits have proven this place a sure winner- from marbles and oddballs you seldom see in an antique mall all the way down to local glass and my favorite- IRIDESCENT!- you won't find a more beautiful place to visit if you like what I have always just called "colored glass". Be sure to catch the daily glass blower- something to see and then appreciate when considering the artisan here. Make sure to tip the place- the admission is very minimal and your extra will only make this place better- if that is possible!

Fabulous glass Museum in Lancaster, Ohio -- which has long had the nickname "Glass City" due to Anchor Hocking being headquartered there for years.

Many glass ware companies are featured though ... as are many styles & varieties.

They also have wonderful classes and events for glass blowing. Grat instructors as well for these. We've had the chance to take two separate classes, one for ornaments and one for a paperweight. both were excellent and we felt we learned a lot and ended up with a nice hand crafted project to take home. NOTE - your glass projects need to stay and cure for a couple days, so you'll need to stop back by and pick up later. If you are from out of town you can have them shipped to you.

Definitely worth the visit if you're interested in glass!

Seeing the history of glass in the region (Hocking Hills is the Hocking in anchor Hocking) was really interesting and the glass blowing demonstration was great. We even bought the piece he made and picked it up on the drive home from our trip.

My wife really enjoys this place and always brings home some of the Anchor glassware as well. They also have some beautiful glass made there in their studio. Worth the stop!

This glass museum has alot of interesting rooms such as the Vault Room; theme collections in the main gallery; glass blowing demo; educational video; and a gift shop. It was quite interesting to learn more about Ohio's early glass development. Kudos to Mike for such a fabulous museum.

Docents are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Film is informative touching social history as well as the story of how pervasive glass production was in Ohio's economy in years gone by. The glassblowing demonstration is well done. The pristine glass display cases are filled with colorful pieces of glass, arranged to tell the story of Ohio's role in American glass production.

We needed a fun 'rainy day' adventure while we were visiting Hocking Hills. We decided to take a glass blowing class at the Ohio Glass Museum. Our instructor Theresa gave us very good guidance and direction as we 'blew' our own glass witch balls. It was very entertaining and a fun experience...
