What a lovely collection of glass, and stroll through time. The facility is very nice, and the available information was interesting. The display of the glass is a testament to the artists of the area.

This museum's exhibit of Steuben glass is absolutely the best! Many extremely rare Steuben pieces are shown; you will only see them here. Their American glass collection is also wonderful. Nice town and nice people.

Great place to stop and see. Everything that was or is made from glass - there is an example here. Free admission but you can leave a donation (worth it).
