Intricate, delicate, bold and colorful...Hudson Beach Glass is like a mini museum for glass creations.

The wonderment of "how do they make" such beautiful pieces will leave you wanting to go back for more. The way the establishment is set up is nothing short of genius, open spaces downstairs with an upstairs of several different rooms. Truly is a great place with so much to see, there's plenty to choose from with an affordability that... More

#1 Some of the nicest people I've ever met. We asked so many questions and they patiently answered them all. We came here three times in one weekend. Such beautiful art! Affordable, unique gifts to purchase. You can watch as they blow glass. Thank you Hudson Beach Glass!

I came to Beacon to visit the DIA: Beacon contemporary art museum and detoured into the historic downtown to go especially to this store. Simply a treasure trove of hand-blown art to admire and use in the home. Great also for gifts.

We went on a winter day and enjoyed the store. Some unique pieces and friendly staff. Pretty expensive - you are paying for the setting.

Beautiful place in Beacon it's right in the middle of town easy to find and accommodating. Prices vary which is good just wish the museum upstairs was bigger. I definitely recommend this place to visitors.

Today, we, including my 10 and 12 year old daughters, went to the Hudson Beach Glass building, which is a renovated fire station, and made our own blown Christmas ornaments. We were able to pick the style and colors. The gentleman guiding us through the process was amazing. So much patience with the girls. We can't wait to pick our... More

We bought a pair of very cool heavy glass candlesticks. Got a vets discount to boot! We need to come back and sign up for making Christmas ornaments. Everything here was special and very fair prices.

My family and I were lucky enough to catch a presentation by Katherine (KA on her work). She made a gorgeous vase right in front of our eyes. She and here mom/assistant were super gracious and answered all our questions. It was even educational for the kids. We learned about what metals make which color glass and about the effect... More

We love this place. The glass pumpkins are superb. Have many glasses and the beer glasses are a piece of art. Got the Beacon Sloop club glass when they had Sloop brewery as a fund raiser. Made my own ornament here.

Renovated building with gorgeous staircase. Artisan hand blown glass with something for everyone. Beacon has many shops but this one is very unusual.
