We've seen hot shops before but this one was special. The live narration was informative and enjoyable. The artist doing his work was ready to share what he was executing with everyone.

This was a most interesting place -- I happen to love art glass and was not disappointed. They were celebrating Libby glassworks and had some very special pieces on display.

In town for a family wedding and was able to stay an extra day to see the sights. The glass pavilion was a special treat.

This hidden jewel to me across the street (from the TMOA) with a demonstration of glass blowing and the history of the Libby was a great learning experience. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Toledo.

The Pavilion's exhibits focus more on glass craft works rather than art, which probably shouldn't be too surprising given the ties to Libbey, but were interesting nonetheless. The glass blowing demo is the highlight of the tour. Now, I've seen demonstrations at the Tacoma Museum...More

We visited this fine example of a tribute to the glass industry that made Toledo famous. The glass-blowing demonstration was very informative and educational.
