Beautiful works, accompanied by friendly staff and informative displays makes for a cool experience at this museum. The price is a little bit on the expensive end, but I imagine thats in part because of the 20000 degree furnace run by natural gas used for the entertaining and intriguing glassblowing show. The person that did the show was humorous and knew how to captivate an audience, even in making a simple vase. The exhibits were colorful and explanatory, and there was obviously a lot of glass, but they were not just shards of glass but fantastic art sculptures! Very much worth the visit.
Definitely neat to see the glass there and the ornate designs. The glass blowing demonstration was informative and fun too. The museum could use a little upkeep in areas though. Also they have a lot of the same kind of glass work on display which started to get a little old to me. A little more variety would be nice. Then again, its important to remember they are showcasing SANDWICH glass, not necessarily all forms of glass art, hence the repetition of the same glass designs. That being said, they do have an exhibit room where they showcase pretty cool glass art from various glass artists.
Was a very nice experience overall. I learned a lot about the history of glass making, the chemical compositions of different types of glass as well as how to make the different shapes. There was a nice demonstration with a glass blower that went through the process of showing an audience how to create simple glass shapes from molten glass in the furnace they have at the facility. There were many beautiful glass structures on display as well. Definitely worth the price to visit.
Excellent facility, great for a rainy day. Tons of exhibits loaded with history, a gift shop filled to the brim with beautiful (though quite pricey) gifts and glass decorations, and a very informative and impressive glass blowing demonstration made this a great way to spend our morning. Bring a camera, and make sure you have a few hours to really be able to take everything in.
Worth it. Really enjoyed the authentic demonstration and the creative, attention grabbing presentations. The glass blower loves what she does! Oh yeah, and the glass collection is spectacular especially on a sunny day. Great history, great shop, and the Josh Simpson exhibition is out of this world and simply beautiful.

A very interesting museum with lots of detail about the glass making process and the history behind the factory. There are lots of glass pieces to look at, maybe too many. The glass blowing demonstration (by Alex) was both educational and hilarious. Id skip the movie if I were you
the glass blowing demonstration makes the place. and you can bye one of the vases they made during the demonstration at the end. the gift shop is cool. some of the stuff is way too expensive in my opinion but they have some relay unique glass products for reasonable prices.
Eu entrei para conhecer a loja, mas fiz o passeio. Deve ser muito legal ver como essas obras de arte tão delicadas são feitas.
Its a lovely space. Mostly dedicated to the history of glass making on the cape, the displays are a thoughtful tour of the interaction of developments in glass making, technology and society. There are also some nice exhibits of beautiful contemporary glass.
Really cool demonstration and historical video. We were hesitant to spend $27 for 3 adult tickets because we werent sure if it would be worth it, but I assure you it was! A very cool must-see learning experiece, this was.
Very interesting, though a bit sad history. Beautiful exhibits and not very expensive. Glass blowing presentation was a bit lame - they could have shown something a little bit more interesting than a hollow ball
We went here on one of the Free Fun Friday dates. The museum was interesting. It was nice to learn about the history of the town. The glassblowing demonstration was nice. There are lots of artistic pieces.
So happy we stopped here this time. Its a quaint stop that gives you feel for the history of the town. The presentation of the glass blowing was fantastic. The walk through is fun with sensing displays.
Beautiful museum. They have interactive exhibits and a glassblowing demonstration. Its way bigger than I imagined--room after room of glass pieces. Plan lots of time and dont go if youre tired.
An outstanding collection of glass objects made in Sandwich during the 19th and 20th centuries. Glass blowing exhibit and beautiful shop make this a worthwhile place to see while in Sandwich.
Never gave any thought to the history of glass before. Really an interesting place. Good demonstration of glass blowing, lots to see, lots of interesting things to read about.
Thr live glass-blowing demonstration was very interesting if you dont know much about glass, and there were several other interesting exhibits. Reasonably-priced for the cape.
The onsite glassblowing demonstrations every hour are a nice touch. And the museum does a surprisingly good job of turning 19th century glassmaking into an interesting story.
Peters glass blowing presentation was fantastic! Thanks for a great time! Kid friendly, and I was surprised at how much my son took to the place. Will revisit and recommend.
Great museum with lots of pieces on display, plus live glassblowing demonstration. They have a lot of really cool pieces, its one of my favorite museums that Ive been to
Gorgeous little museum that houses a large collection of artifacts. Some unusual pieces, good information and an interesting live demonstration of glass blowing.
Nice glass blowing demo, comprehensive history in the video on Sandwich glass, and a large collection of beautiful glass. Allow about an hour to see everything.
Fantastic demonstration of blown glass technique from start to finish. The gift shop is a glass lovers dream. From $10 to thousands, the choice is yours.
Definitely more to see and learn about glassmaking than we thought when we pulled up. Very interesting and you can see glass blowing every hour!
Fantastic glass factorie, museum tour and the interactive displays very cool. The glass blower made a wine glass, He was very entertaining
The demonstration we saw was fun, informative, and interesting. The displays have many examples of fine glass work over hundreds of years.
Saw the glass blowing demonstration, which was cool. Every object in the gift shop, while beautiful, was way too expensive for my wallet.
Best way to be introduced to Cape Cod and its history..... loved the "movie" presentation and the dinning room interaction display.
We were down with a bus tour from Canada. I found it very interesting and educational and the staff was friendly
Definitely an interesting place, the glass maker was funny and interesting. Glass being sold was quite expensive though
Great history about glass. Many displays and detailed information. Funny and informative glass blowing demonstration.
Great place. Lots to see and the glass blowing was great. Got nice little touches to inform you about its history
The museum had very interesting exhibits with cool use of technology. The live glass blowing was super neat.
