The Historical Glass Museum has a large collection of glassware made in America dating from the 1800s to the present day. The volunteer non-profit, tax-exempt Foundation that runs the museum was founded in 1976 by a group of dedicated glass collectors. After working together for ten years to raise money and obtain glass for display, the Historical Glass Museum opened in 1985.Plan my day in Redlands using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Absolutely amazing museum! It could easily be boring if you just browse, but talking to the volunteer and reading the placards makes it a great experience. I would absolutely recommend going as it is free to experience and easily accessible.
The museum is in a small Victorian, and filled with different collections of antique glass. They get these pieces mostly from donations, and if you are interested in some old glass, you find many there with explanations of what they are. There is also a gift shop where they raise money selling donated items they do not need, or have doubles. I recommend a visit
