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.

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.

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!
