Glass Museums

We believe that it is important for lovers of glass to join together to support the various museums dedicated to American-made glassware. There are museums dedicated to your favorite glass company (Heisey, Cambridge, Fostoria, Imperial, Duncan & Miller, Tiffin, etc.) which you should support as a collector of their wares.

The Corning Museum of Glass is by far the largest museum in America dedicated to glass and it includes glass made from ancient times to the present. They also have an extensive archive of research material which can be accessed by the public. Their web site includes videos of glass artists in action, making articles of glass.

Below are three museums which should interest collectors of Depression-Era American-made glassware, and which definitely warrant your support (and a visit would be nice, too). Click on the name of any of the museums mentioned to go to the corresponding web pages.
