Make the Museum part of your holiday tradition! Take your family’s picture in front of our 14-foot ornament tree or get in the holiday spirit by going on a Winter Wonders Gallery Hunt. Enjoy a Hot Glass Demonstration, and submit your drawing to You Design It; We Make It for a chance to have your design made by one of our gaffers (included in Museum admission). Enjoy extended Make Your Own Glass hours (fee) and make a glass ornament or snowman. Please note that the Museum is closed December 24 and 25, and January 1.

Activities for all ages. Included in the cost of admission.

Current Exhibitions
Don’t miss your chance to visit our two exhibitions, Curious and Curiouser: Surprising Finds from the Rakow Library (open through February 17, 2019) and Tiffany's Glass Mosaics (open through January 7, 2018).

Glassmaking Demos
Watch as expert glassmakers transform molten glass into beautiful objects at the live, narrated Hot Glass Demonstrations. Don’t miss the Flameworking and Glassbreaking Demos.

You Design It; We Make It!
Submit a drawing of something you’d like to see come alive in glass. One piece will be made during the Hot Glass Demonstration and pieces will be chosen daily for the flameworking demonstration. Glassmakers will choose drawings and make those pieces from start to finish.

Make Your Own Glass Ornaments, Snowmen, and Pendants
Add a one-of-a-kind memory to your tree with a Make Your Own Glass ornament, or Victorian-style ornament. Christmas tree and snowmen sculptures help to make the season and your home bright. Or wear your holiday cheer with a snowman or Christmas tree pendant. Other projects are available as well.
