Science Museum Museum
The establishment of the Ohio Glass Museum incorporated in 2002 reflects the importance of glass in the history and development of Lancaster and Fairfield County's financial stability from 1888 to present. Because of the abundance of natural resources including natural gas and sand in this area, the establishment of the glass industry was a logical step in utilizing those resources. In fact, in 2003 Lancaster was designated the "Pressed Glass Capital" of Ohio by the State Legislature.

  • Beautiful glass, knowledge staff. Not a huge collection, but very high quality. The displays rotate regularly and the facility itself is wonderfully restored. If you love local glass it is worth a stop, admission around $6 per person.
  • Excellent place to visit while in Lancaster! Beautiful museum, though a little small, with an amazing and extensive collection. The docents do an amazing job of interacting with and teaching about the glass, and are willing to answer any and all questions presented. The glass making display and classes are also not to be missed!!
  • Definitely worth a stroll through, it's small, good way to spend a couple minutes while waiting for something downtown.
  • The glass blowing demonstration is awesome, and very cool gift shop.
  • Teriffic collection of glassware by renowned Ohio glassmakers through the century, which was made more interesting by the excellent docent.
