They are noted for their glass collection. There are pieces from ancient middle east to modern, current artists. Specially noteworthy is the Lalique display. There are also special exhibitions. The current one featuresphtos showing the work of NASA Langley

This museum is free! They have a wonderful collection of art glass, glassware and everyday items from Medieval times to the present. I spent hours just looking at everything.

When you go to the museum each month you have a curator that will explain each item that we go to. The main reason that we have a curator is that if you have Alzheimer’s then you don’t have to pay cause the Alzheimer’s Association...More

Of course. This is the most amazing Museum, and I'm sure the docents will accommodate any tour you would like.
