We stopped here by chance as we thought it was a farmers market too. The talent that is displayed by the glassblower is worth seeing. There was an on-site demonstration going on so that people could watch up close and personal. Lots of unique pieces...More

The place had glass from all over the world and especially WV and different ways glass had been used since the 1850s and we both found it very interesting. No admission charge, but there was a donation jar.

A great deal of American glassware is on display at this mid-sized museum in downtown Weston, and it's free. Very friendly staff, and I think they are all or mostly volunteers. I wish they would have had a little more historical information or dating of...More

Wasn't sure what to expect when we decided to visit. We were amazed at the amount and diversity of the exhibits. One gentleman took the time to answer our questions re glass history of WV.
