Really wonderful place to visit. I am an engineer and was looking forward to the history of Glass and the science of Glass which the museum offers and does a great job. However, I ended up loving the art exhibits.

Good Museum! Loved the exhibits and the demonstrations. You could definitely spend the better part of a day here. Just disappointed with the rude tourists, but the Museum is wonderful.
