The glass museum was a fantastic place to spend a few hours. I particularly loved the art nouveau pieces. Quite a lot of stairs as it is situated in a very old building which is beautifully maintained. Definitely recommend a visit.

We enjoyed walking through the glass museum and seeing the wonderful collection of glass - mostly utilitarian if not decorative.

Enormous collection in a deceptively large building, covering several floors Displays are interesting but not well labeled or explained, and somewhat repetitious Worthwhile visit for some but too much for many others

I loved seeing all the colorful glass at the Glasmuseum in Passau, but the lighting left much to be desired. Four, maybe five floors of lovely glass in many rooms, but the lighting was on motion sensors. Some lights never flickered. As a paperweight enthusiast,...More

This is a very interesting museum. If you like glass and crystal you must visit this museum. Many old pieces.
