I have been coming to the Blenko Glass Factory & Gift Shop for more than 20 years and each visit is a fun, unique experience. On this visit I purchased a variety of colored glass items, because as always, I find beautiful new offerings that I want to add to my collection or give as gifts.

We did not view the glassmaking since we have seen it done many times before. We did go through the showroom and view the lovely glassware designs. This place is just a quick few minutes off the interstate and is worth a look for hand blown glass lovers.

Very unique place you need to experience. Not commercialized at all and they want to share what they do with the public. Not many attractions like this place left in the USA .

I was coming back from visiting Huntington and saw the sign for the glass factory, I'd seen it on trip advisor and thought it looked interesting so decided to pop in. It was 4pm so they weren't glass firing but the displays and info were worth stopping for, and the staff were friendly. I even made some purchases to take... More

Off the beaten path but definitely worth the time to get there. Small historic museum. Tours and demos Monday through Friday. Gallery sells legacy glassware all handmade on site; 'seconds' at a discount. Great mementos and gifts, securely packed for travel. Wish we had had more save to pick up a few more pieces.

Went here with family to see a real working glass factory where they still make everything by hand. Great glass items, and the highlight was being able to go to the viewing area and see the Glass Blowers create art before your eyes!

Going to visit my family in WV always included a trip to Benko, so I had to visit again. The day I was there, several people were there from the state, so it was especially nice that they all took the time to speak to my Aunt and myself and also took the time to take me to buy some... More

Had never seen glass blowing before. So educational and such talent in all the lowers. The process is interesting and the history is interesting as well.

My husband and I collect blenko. We came in for the festival from Birmingham Alabama. So excited to see all the same faces as in the past. The classes they offer were packed and full of eager glass blowers. The selection was large to pick from. The glass garden out back is a wonderful addition, you must check it out.

Very beautiful and interesting place to tour and see hand blown glass being made. It's like stepping back in time. Intricate pieces, fun pieces, art and functionality. Lots of colors to choose from, makes excellent gifts. Tour is self guided and free.
