  • This is a must if you are visiting Tiffin, OH or the surrounding area. We needed to make special arrangements for our visit and the staff were very accommodating and welcoming for our special situation. We were given a private tour during which they provided the history and interesting facts about the Tiffin Glass Company as well as answered all of our questions. They have many unique pieces for sale in the shop if you are looking for collectible and one-of-a-kind for your home or office.
  • Best kept secret for a gift of class and history in Ohio. Prices are unbelievable. Museum docent gave us a great background on one of Ohio's treasures of Artisan manufacturing.
  • If you like antique glass, this is the place!! There are guided tours, or you can just walk around. There is glass to buy as well.. Some really beautiful pieces!
  • Had never been here, and the tour guide really knew his stuff. Definitely worth checking out!
  • A guided tour is good I f want to more about the history. The place is wonderful stop. Is not big but if you like glass or the history of it. It is a nice stop.
