  • Overall not bad. Staff are very friendly, they will help you to take pictures and guide you from the beginning till the end. Entrance fee RM15 for Malaysian, including souvenir which made by your own. The staff will guide you every step to make sure you didn't done any mistakes. But just too less information about glass, the design was great.
  • Interesting place but really small. There is a friendly guide who would tell some story about the place and lead you around the museum. Guide is friendly but overly 'helpful' in offering her service as a photographer to us, even when we did not want to be part of the picture. At the end of the guide (we are not allow to walk around without one) we were led to a tiny workshop station ( approx 2-3 long tables) where we get to make our own blow glass images (bookmark side glass). Additional cost is needed to customize your glass design with colors, otherwise you are given a free glass design of what you made (without any colors). Pros of this place : Affordable for locals, free glass making class/customization. Cons: Do not like the idea of a local / tourist price system lay out by the museum. Glass museum is smaller then visualized, seen better museums with similar concepts in other countries.
  • We designed our own glass piece here! The staff was extremely friendly and passionate. He took us around for a tour and explained to us how it was designed.
  • The staffs are friendly and helpful. They will give you a piece of glass, carve whatever you like on the sticker and the staff will help carving on the glass. The place is small in area, only a few places to take photos but it's awesome especially the Avatar room.
  • Nothing here worthy of being in a museum. I've got nicer ornaments in my house. Go a couple of blocks up the road to the giant pet shop instead, it's much more interesting and free!
