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.....

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

The exhibit is a little difficult to appreciate if one does not speak Swedish. The objects on display are beautiful and varied, though, ranging from very old glass and crystal pieces to the very most contemporary work.

If you go the the Glass Museum the ticket also gives you entry into the Smalands Museum and Utvandrarnas Hus (all adjacent to each other). All three are not big in size but offer overall good value.

First we went to the history of Smaland section of the museum and after that we went to the glass section. We enjoyed the glass section more. There were some very nice pieces presented. Overall it was nice for about one hour. You could probably...More

Go here to see the history and scope of glass production in this part of Sweden - an essential part of the region's culture.
