Where's the Glass?

Issue #366 - October 2003

As we glass collectors travel around the country, we seek out antique shops, flea markets, estate sales and anywhere else we might go to add to our collections. But we also ought to seek out the many museums - large and small - that show off glass. Not only is the glass beautiful but one can develop an understanding of the context of glass making in American history - it was the very first industry in the American colonies.

Herewith, a compendium of some of America's glass museums (as well as other museums with substantial glass divisions). This is certainly not a complete list, and I welcome any additions from you own experience. Enjoy!

Send us your favorites and we'll list more museums in a subsequent issue.
