Keeping everyone safe is our idea of a glass act! We have some new guidelines and measures in place to ensure your visit is safe and enjoyable, with the help of our Safety Guide, Penguin Pierre. Pierre has been working hard to keep an eye on our collection, and now he gets to use his PPE (Penguin Protective Experience) to help you enjoy a safe and fun day at the Museum.
Think kids and glass don’t mix? Think again! Our exciting new line-up of family-friendly demos offer a close-up look at the extraordinary things artists can do with glass.
Kids 17 and under are FREE! Museum admission is valid for two consecutive days.
Do you want to help our glassmakers design an object? Catch Bubbleheads, an interactive demonstration where you and your family help decide how the finished character will look. A Bubblehead is a fun little creature who starts out as a humble glass bubble. The live audience chooses colors, features, and expressions to give it its own unique personality, from colorful noses and expressive eyes to wacky hairstyles.
Make Your Own Glass
Commemorate your visit to the Museum with a truly unique project that you can only experience here—Make Your Own Glass! Our skilled glassmakers will guide you through the process as you create your own piece of glass art. From fusing to sandblasting, there are a variety of projects for all ages and skill levels. We recommend reserving your spot for this popular experience in advance.
