  • You should be of glass, because everything here is glasgerelateerd. So without saying no environment for running toddlers. All the glass is also behind glass, which makes the Setup what static but I think no different. Some showcases make a what full impression, but that is because the museum really all they also have shows: there is no filing or warehouse. You will be well on your way helped by nice people who tell you what you can see and it is recommended that the numbers of the rooms to keep an eye on, because it is by the structure of two vastgeknoopte houses to each other a bit complicated and otherwise you'll see a room twice and another not. Many glass objects bring you back to the Dinnerware from your parents or grandparents ("o that we also had glass, o that cookie jar of glass, I see him so again at grandma") and you learn also all looking something about different ways of glass working and decoration. The section on designer Copier I found particularly fun and informative. That good OLE gilde glass, everybody knows, is a design in the category paper clip: so common and known that someone you really just need to explain how special it is. And what a wonderful things that man has in addition still made. The coffee in the café in the basement is not very great, but the homemade cakes is really excellent and the toilets spotlessly clean. On the top floor smoking we the Apple Pie Baked all those down. We spent a fun and informative one and a half hours by this museum and if you are a true glass lover, you can enjoy longer still. MJK valid, accessible to disabled persons, (funny authentic) safety deposit box for the backpack, don't do it with small children and certainly just along the pastries. In the shop you can purchase all kinds of glass for home but think in advance about how you are going to take. Also many books about glass.

  • Has often been in this museum and every time it's different. Now a beautiful exhibition on optical cut glass. Also nice that the depot pieces to show up in the walkways. Friendly staff, easy free parking.

  • This museum is located in the two former directors villas. These are through four walkways connected to each other. In the walkways in showcases the entire permanent collection of the museum. In the villas can be found on the different floors the changing exhibitions. Also in the garden, behind the museum, in glass greenhouses, also still beautiful glass objects. Tip! 1. Parking is available near the dike, at the club house of the Rowing Association. 2. buy a combination ticket, also the glass-blowing demonstration against the Centre.

  • This museum is really great. It's the only glass museum here in the Netherlands and has a vast collection of different pieces of art by Dutch, French and Belgian designers. Most of the collection is based on pieces that have been made by the people in Leerdam themselves. The exposition is a little under development right now, so we got a discount on our tickets which was really nice. It was super interesting and I would love to go again some time.
  • Lovely contemporary glass but I wish there was an English translation on the exhibited works. Beautiful glass, beautiful setting!
  • Expensive entrance fee, but nice apple pie in cafe
  • A lot of interesting glass sculptures and exhibitions.
  • Great open collection, beautiful pieces.
