Hello! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! However, I believe you meant to review West Virginia American Art Glass, or perhaps Appalachian Glass. We unfortunately do not have glass blowing here. Just making sure to give credit where credit is due!...More

We stumbled on this wonderful museum because of a road sigh and it was worth the side trip to visit. Glass in so many forms , shapes and colors. The museum is self guided and free. Metered parking is available.

I'm not a glass collector, and I don't know much about historical glass, so for me, this was just ok. I saw some pretty things, but I really would have appreciated more context. The museum is very organized, but it is not organized well. IT...More
