Well worth the price of admission. Visitors are encouraged to touch the stained glass. The clock collection is remarkable. Liked how there were buttons to push to hear the chimes on many of the clocks.

Spent a lovely hour in this unique museum with short informative tours of the stained glass and clocks. It is small, immersive and unforgettable. Staff are fantastic. Highly recommended.

A must for anyone who enjoys clocks or stained glass windows. They had incredible pieces and extremely informative signs. We learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The museum itself is also a gorgeous building, very clean and full of light.

This is a really impressive museum of Tiffany Stain Glass windows and thousands of historic time pieces. They have organized their collection in a way that lets you experience the progression of time piece craftsmanship over the centuries (including pieces from Napoleon and Catherine the Great, to name a few) and experience the variety of stain glass and other items that the Tiffany family created, such as chandeliers, mosaics, oil paintings, and much more. I was really surprised by the breadth and depth of the collection. They do a great job of providing historical context via plaques.

This is a great museum for scholars and families alike. They made it clear that you are welcome to touch the stain glass so as to experience the different techniques of stain glass used to achieve a wide variety of visual effects. There is no touching the clocks but they have them behind glass, so no worries about letting your child explore the exhibits and letting them find their favorites.

I didn't explore their event spaces on the upper floors but the photos look great and I can imagine the museum being a spectacular place for an event that caters to the interests of a wide audience.

This is definitely worth a visit.

I came across this Museum on Instagram. I was blown away by the beautiful colors so I had to come see in person! I loved this museum because there was so much history. As an artist myself I was interested to find out about the stained glass process as seeing how its been made throughout history. My favorite part was seeing the Tiffany mosaics, lamps, silverware, ect... I was really interested in the Tiffany family and how they grew each part of their business. The people at the Museum were very knowledgeable and eager to help.
