Not bad, the best part was the third floor with all of the glass sculptures and the gallery. I think people should be allowed to take pictures without flash.

It's very moving to visit the building in the middle of the factory, and to hear the machines roaring at the other side of the wall, as well as to cross paths with workers.

Challenging to find the entrance. We were dropped at the service entrance/exit and there was no indication of how to get to the museum entrance. Eventually we found the side street it is on and walked down about 4 blocks. Then there is a prominent set of glass doors that are well-labeled. The museum closes at 5pm so try to arrive before 4pm to give yourself enough time. It’s literally located on the glass factory campus so it’s fun to learn a bit by seeing workers in action. The museum is all in Spanish though so if, like us, your Spanish is only adequate, spend the majority of your time appreciating the art, tools, and modern home. (You are given the option of hammering a “no shatter” window, which is rather fun.)

The museum is within the factory, ask the security guard at entry for exact location. The museum is housed in a historic building. Very distinctive architecture for the region. The museum is three stories and has the glass pieces arranged in somewhat chronological order. Photography is not allowed but the free entry and tour make up for this inconvenience. When you enter, take some time to let your eyes adjust to the low light levels. The museum has a good glass collection but it also contains items once used at the factory. Excellent way to learn about glass and the history of glass in this region.
Make sure to ask for a guided tour. Also there are workshops and other galleries on an adjacent building, illustrating current art and products.

The history behind the making of glass bottles and other types of custom glass unfolds throughout this museum. It really is one of a kind.
