Our docents provide visitors with a tour that tells the history of early glass making processes right up to present day manufacturing techniques. Our movie “Born of Fire” tells the story of glass produced in Lancaster and Fairfield County.
In 2010 we established a “Glass Studio” where we can demonstrate and educate the public in the art of glass making. Our glass blower provides demonstrations during regular museum hours, and also holds classes for those who are interested in getting a hands-on approach to making special works of art.
The museum’s Gift Shop, opened in 2005, offers artistic creations provided by the museum’s glass blowers and other local glass artists. We also offer locally manufactured glassware items for the home.
Under the direction of our Art Director and our other volunteers, we continue to provide our patrons with interesting displays of glassware from collectors in the local, surrounding areas, and sometimes out-of-state. These collections have included some of the most well know producers of glass throughout the country: many of which are no longer in production.
The museum offers rental space for meetings and special events. Group tours can be arranged during regular museum hours or by appointment. Additional information is available by calling 740.687.0101.
