I don't really know much about American glass but this place was really interesting. It's free, also so we left a donation. There were people there to ask questions.

I am not a glass collector, but this visit was absolutely fascinating! I saw many pieces which were duplicates of ones I had seen in homes of relatives and friends. Displays are well organized and someone does a fantastic job on dusting! There is a...More
