  • My favorite was to watch the artists in the Hop Spot creating glass items. The glass in the fountain was lovely. We were glad to see a discount for seniors and AAA.

  • Amazing. Just straight up amazing. I'm not a glass person, or what have you, but I loved every minute if it. The live demonstrations are glorious. And so well done I was invested in every step of that molten glass journey
  • This was our 1st visit to this museum. It was absolutely stunning to see the work!! There was some serious detail on a lot of the pieces.. I had no idea there were so many clever artists with glass. Lol the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The gift shop was great!! And the bridge outside is stunning and remarkable!! There are no other words for that for the detailed beautiful works at this museum. We will definitely be returning.
