It is a smaller museum than you think, but the theatre section was my favorite part. Make sure you allow enough time to watch whatever they are showing in the theatre!

Go often, the displays change regularly. The glass is beautiful.

Save lots of time for the Hot Studio, really it's the primary attraction. Also, I really enjoyed the pieces based off of children's drawing that are near the restrooms. As for the remainder of the museum, it's pretty pedestrian for the cost. It is worth it to see once, but besides the hot studio where they are actually making glass one visit in a lifetime is probably all you really need.

Go when you can definitely see them making something

While it wasn't as amazing as I expected it was still worth the visit, especially with a Groupon deal! I really liked watching them work in the Hot Shop while someone talked us through what they were doing. That was neat!

Allow at least three hours to see MOST of what the MOG has to offer.

Clean out the outdoor water displays more often. I know its the Northwest but they were disgustingly dirty.

From Our Editors

The Museum of Glass is the only museum west of the Mississippi to exclusively showcase one of art's most delicate media: glass. The museum provides a dynamic learning environment to appreciate the medium of glass through creative experiences, collections, and exhibitions. Stop by the Hot Shop, housed in the museum's 90-foot-tall stainless-steel dome, to watch professional artists as they blow and shape molten glass into artistic sculptures or thought bubbles. Be sure to examine the museum's outdoor installations, including Martin Blank's Fluent Steps, the colorful Chihluly Bridge of Glass, and the Water Forest, a series of towering acrylic tubes filled with rising and falling water.
