Blenko Glass studio and tour will give you the opportunity to watch real craftsmen make all those gorgeous pieces you see in the studio. All made by hand.

If you like the experience of seeing a real factory at work, then Blenko is a great stop. The people making glass objects are at work. No show is put on for visitors -- you see the real operation in a factory that has been there since 1921. After seeing them actually at work, you can go back into the... More

We loved watching them make the glass. It is a unique way to spend the afternoon. We bought a beautiful bowl and i think of the place often. Be careful with your children this is a glass place.

If you like blown glass, this is a very good place to visit. The visitor center was filled with the most beautiful vases, places, pitchers, novelties and decorations. The work area also can be visited where you can see workman making the beautiful glass wares. This place is remarkable and this was our second visit here. We shall return !

I have been coming to the Blenko Glass Factory & Gift Shop for more than 20 years and each visit is a fun, unique experience. On this visit I purchased a variety of colored glass items, because as always, I find beautiful new offerings that I want to add to my collection or give as gifts.

We did not view the glassmaking since we have seen it done many times before. We did go through the showroom and view the lovely glassware designs. This place is just a quick few minutes off the interstate and is worth a look for hand blown glass lovers.

Very unique place you need to experience. Not commercialized at all and they want to share what they do with the public. Not many attractions like this place left in the USA .

I was coming back from visiting Huntington and saw the sign for the glass factory, I'd seen it on trip advisor and thought it looked interesting so decided to pop in. It was 4pm so they weren't glass firing but the displays and info were worth stopping for, and the staff were friendly. I even made some purchases to take... More

Off the beaten path but definitely worth the time to get there. Small historic museum. Tours and demos Monday through Friday. Gallery sells legacy glassware all handmade on site; 'seconds' at a discount. Great mementos and gifts, securely packed for travel. Wish we had had more save to pick up a few more pieces.
