The Fenton Museum and Art Glass is a museum, glass store and glass exhibit house founded by the brothers Frank L and John W. Fenton in 1905. To this day, Fenton Glass is the largest manufacturer of handmade colored glass in the whole United States. Aside from these accomplishments, the company is also known for its innovative and contemporary glass art, with beautiful colors and hand painted decorations. With the development of colors, the Fenton Museum and Art Glass further developed new colors that they use on pressed and blown glassware.

Fenton glass also developed new patterns and enhanced their technique in hand painting floral pieces. Some of their glass arts also include 22k gold accents, making it appealing to customers and patrons of all ages. These techniques and individual ideas became one of the most important reasons why people always love this museum.

In 2005, the firm is being managed by third and fourth generation Fenton family. It celebrated a century of history of glass art. Today, the museum and store grew to over 100 employees including glass makers and decorators.
