This place was on my bucket list for a few years and I got to share my experience with my daughter and two grandsons!! I watch Blown Away and was so excited to see the pieces on display.

We loved the museum ! First of all, there are a large number of extensive exhibits to tour. The venue is open, airy and serene. I particularly liked the history of glass making and many of the ancient pieces accompanying it. Virtually any famous glassmaker you can think of has pieces in various sections. The cafe is also terrific for lunch or a snack. Lots of hot options including soups, sandwiches, entrees and pizzas. Leave at least 3 hours to visit!

Wow! Lots of unique glasswork throughout the museum. I know I'd visited probably in the early 80's--not sure what I saw then but now it is amazing! (think back then all I remember are the plates, lol). Guest glassblowers. You could watch them creating works of art all while a fellow glassblower explains it to you. Lots of shopping opportunities. Was surprised we were there close to 4 hours! AND not that we could due to our schedule, but your admission ticket is good for 2 days! Good deal!

Lots of interactive displays! The displays were historical and topical at the same time. Constantly heard, "Mom, look at this!" from a 13-year-old boy in a glass museum. Great family experience!

My husband and I enjoyed 3-4 hours at the museum and enjoyed every second. The galleries seemed to go on forever and just when you thought you were at the end, another hallway appeared. Some parts we went through fast and others we kept pointing interesting factoids out to one another. We hope to return someday as we only left because it was physically an information overload with so much to see and ...we loved the history too surprisingly. Took in glass blowing demos and listened to two speaker sessions and it was very interesting. The shop was also nice..most items were too expensive for our tastes but they did have a few clearance items of pyrex we really wished we had purchased more of for Christmas gifts. We purchased the two day combo passes and also took in the Rockwell Western Indian Museum that was fabulous on Day 2. We would have gone back to Glass Museum but weather outside was amazing so hiked instead. Changing colors were amazing. Downtown mainstream had some nice shops also.

This place is a must see. A beautiful and interesting building with so much to see and do. Entry is very reasonably priced.The exhibits are thoughtfully laid out and movement around the building is easy. I loved being able to look at the history of glass and then see some contemporary pieces, especially from the TV show, Blown Away. The shop is like a whole different exhibition and we picked up some very nice pieces.The live demonstrations are a must-see and give a real insight into the process of glass making. The commentary to these demonstrations is informative, friendly and easy to understand.The highlight of the day though was being able to make our own glass ornaments. I would highly recommend booking to do that as soon as you arrive, slots are limited. We booked after we had seen most of the museum and had a long wait until our slot. We got to make a pumpkin and a flower with expert help from the wonderful staff. I cannot describe the sense of achievement that we both had and when we picked up the pieces the next day we were delighted with the results. They will take pride of place in our home in London.

What a gorgeous place to spend a day viewing, making and learning about glass! We toured both the modern and the historical glass exhibits, participated in two glass making projects and watched a demonstration of glass blowing. The gift shop is also a must see. Great food in the cafe and the building itself is visually interesting from both the inside and outside. My two kids (4&7) enjoyed it all as much as the adults and they participated in glass fusing and glass blowing.
