Enjoy extended Make Your Own Glass hours. Try your hand at glassmaking (additional fee). Projects exist for all ages. We recommend booking ahead of time.

You Design It; We Make It!
Submit a drawing of something you’d like to see come alive in glass. At select Hot Glass Demos throughout the day, glassmakers will choose a drawing and make that piece from start to finish. Can't make it to the Museum for the demo? You can watch the live streams from your computer on February 21 and 25 at 10 am.
