Visited the three shops and saw some wonderful glass objects. They are beautiful. Didn't have time for the museum but wish we did. Kind person at the entrance loaned us a wheel chair for my mother and it mad everything so easy.

This place has been around for quite sometime probably forty plus years. There is always something different going on almost weekly. The glass making is daily and it is a real working glass foundry. A must stop if your in Southern New Jersey.

Wheaton Arts has quaint and interesting shops, a glass museum, snack bar, glass-blowing demonstrations, classes and workshops, and gallery spaces. Wonderful waterfront green space adds to the tranquil ambience.
