Glass of every shape and size, in a small gallery. All hand blown. Prices are however on the costly side, and you will find little under $100 and much of the stock is well over $200. 10 to 20 minutes would cover the visit.

We visit Portsmouth about once a year and NMG is s must stop for us. We have bought art pieces for several hundreds of dollars and jewelry for less than a hundred. Love them all. Nice staff and fun for browsing if you aren't spending.

My wife and I are in our twenties. We lived in Portsmouth for four years and would browse this shop a lot. They usually had at least a few things we'd think were pretty cool. We like the ocean a lot and so usually we were suckers for blown glass waves, Sharks, or stuff like that. They'd also occasionally get... More

In the picturesque part of Portsmouth, NH, we've been to this store several times. Both to look and to buy. We've brought several friends there, who have also bought art glass pieces. The owners are always there and available to answer questions whether we're buying or just admiring. We make this shop our destination in the area. Well worth a... More

As a lover of all things glass, this store is on par with a candy stor for me. Although I cannot afford much of what is displayed, spending an hour just looking at the varied and unusual creations in glass fill my heart. Love this place!

The owners welcome people to come in and enjoy the stunning collection, whether you're interested in purchasing or not. They don't make the art glass themselves, but have searched national wide for the best glass artists. Many of the pieces are amazing and you wonder "how did they make that!" Some of the glass is decorative and others function...jewelry, perfume... More

The art is lovely, but spend your money elsewhere. The staff are rude, even if you're planning to purchase, and you can find glass just as lovely elsewhere.
