A visit to the Sandwich Glass Museum was a delight....a wonderful glass-blowing exhibition, loads of lovely glassware often mounted in sunshiny windows, and interesting films and exhibits. Leave an hour to two...they have a scavenger hunt for the kids to find special items, and this worked just great for a 5 and 9 y/o. Will go back again.
I guess any subject matter can have a lousy museum or a great one - this one takes the subject of glass blowing and makes it interesting. The glass blowing demonstration was good but even better were the displays - colorful, well-presented, interesting, beautiful building. Definitely worth it.
The museum is quite fascinating and goes way back to when medical instruments were made of glass. Glass blowing demonstration is great and the Q&A during and after it was a nice touch. Decent gift shop with some reasonably priced glass pieces, jewelry, etc...
My wife and I gained a new appreciation of the artistry of glass design. The demo of glass blowing was a nice way to begin our visit, and we asked a lot of questions whih were welcomed and answered in detail.

The gift shop at the end offers a variety of items to select from; makes... 更多

This museum has gone up to $9 per person. I just did not find that much of interest there. There is a really good glass blowing demo, and there is a movie about glass blowing artisans, but the rest just wasn't that interesting.
One of the things we liked about the Sandwich Glass Museum was that it was large enough to have enough displays to look at, so we felt we got our money's worth, yet it was small enough, so we didn't get "museum-out". We started by watching an introductory film in which glassblowers from around the country told stories about their... 更多
Obviously you must have an appreciation for glassware to enjoy the museum and it is small. They have artisans making hand blown pieces throughout the day and there are some impressive pieces on display. You see how glassware has changed in style and complexity thru the past 2 centuries. The gift shop has some interesting pieces for purchase. Would not... 更多
