  • Oglebay at Christmas is a regular holiday visit for us. However, to truly appreciate the Glass shop you need to come when one of the glass workers is doing a demonstration. Call to find out when. It's really amazing to watch them turn molten glass into pieces of art.
  • The museum is in the basement, and covers the history of local glass making. Interesting and small. The gift shop is as big as the museum covering the entire main floor. Regrettably original glass pieces were relegated to a small separate shop in the middle while the whole back of the store was Fiesta ware. A little more variety would be nice.
