  • Beautiful glass art. Well worth a visit.
  • Liked it very much. Fascinating exhibits. I strongly recommend.
  • The museum has a very comprehensive exhibition about history and technology of glass manufacturing both in Finland and elsewhere in the world. They have very impressive pieces of Finnish glass design with a distinct style and sense of beauty, and excavated pieces of glasswork of ancient times, they have an interesting collection of utility glassware, such as pharmacy, soft drinks and alcohol beverage bottles, jars, flasks, tableware, leadcut crystalls etc. The exhibition is educative for both children and adults and one has to reserve at least half a day if wants to look at it thoroughly. It takes 3 floors to go through, quite much of an interesting text to read, and many videos about mesmerizing glass blowing to watch. Highly recommend. One drawback I noticed that they don't have audioguides, which is not entirely suitable for people with reading disabilities. However, as I understood, that they're working or going to work on this problem .
  • Great collection! But as sad as it is the feeling that this place gives to you is like that it has been built up to work as an mausoleum for the Lost World.
  • If you are interested in glass, its history and design in Finland then this is the right place to be
