Great glass museum! Loved the wonderful examples of handmade glass made by local residents many, many years ago. They were very skilled. The glass factory closed in 1958 and started operation in 1896.

Custom Heisey marbles available for purchase. Big hit with our kids. Beautiful displays. Cool glimpse back into history. You can purchase Heisey pieces in the gift shop at great prices. I bought a few storybook baby mugs for future baby shower gifts. Definitely recommend!
