This city is known for its glass blowing and glass art. There is no better way to see you then at this Museum. Make sure you check out the glass jail cell.

The place is small with some nice Japanese glass lamp shades. I visited the museum on a cold rainy day so it was okay, I wouldn't book a tour specially to see the place. 30 minutes are enough to see all exhibits and then move...More

Nothing much over there, therefore not worth a visit. Only thing is there are some decent food stalls but when I went, only some were open

I am sure those with an interest in glass art and its history would find this enjoyable, but if you are not it is not really worth the entrance fee.

We loved seeing the different ways glass is used and adapted in Taiwan and beyond. Don't miss the workshop where you can watch students try their hand at glass blowing. Also check out the shops down the path where local artisans sell their work. We...More
