We were surprised how many beautiful pieces of glass were on display, especially the Steuben Collection. We were given so much information and our questions were answered by the friendly docent. Glad we visited!

be prepared to spend lots of time as you wander through the aisles that showcase different periods, styles, eras and techniques of glass making. The colors and pieces are a treat for the eyes.
