3.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
More than just an entertaining diversion for a rainy day, Passauer Glasmuseum (The Glass Museum) is a wonderland of historic glass. In 1985 astronaut Neil Armstrong cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony of this museum, which is filled with more than 30,000 invaluable pieces of glass and crystal, representing a variety of styles and covering centuries of glass-making history. Most of the pieces you can see at this location come from the renowned glassworks of Bohemia, though the museum also exhibits works by the famous Viennese designers. The site is quite large, and it's easy to get lost here for hours; be sure to pick up a floor plan at the entrance before heading to a section that most appeals to your interests. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Passau holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Passauer Glasmuseum (The Glass Museum) and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
