Although the West Virginia Museum of American Glass had been successfully incorporated in 1993, five more years would pass before the museum officially opened its doors to the public. It is one of the best places to visit if you wish to know more about the country?s fascinating glass heritage and interesting glassmaking traditions of West Virginia.
American glassware collections displayed in the museum are from the 19th century up to present time. The best glassware of both major and little-known manufacturers are included in their exhibits, including items such as glass toilet floats and a Depression era machine glassware.
There?s also five huge covered jars that had been designed by none other than Fritz Driesbach and manufactured by the state?s very own Milton-based Blenko Glass Co.
The West Virginia Museum of American Glass also operates the National Marble Museum.
