  • Shining example of how glass was made in 17th c. America. Educational and informative, the glassblowers were eager to answer any questions. Fine gift shop displaying the wares. Also on the sight are the remains of the original Glasshouse and other sights with historical significance. A lovely little stop.
  • A great place to enjoy glass blowing and purchasing handmade items as gifts. Great history behind it.
  • The glasshouse is a historically authentic replica glassblowing operation in walking distance from the historic Jamestown visitors center. Glass artisans apprentice in a four year program to learn how to make wine bottle, vases, pitchers, mugs, shot glasses and more. Employees demonstrate historic techniques. All of the items made can be purchased.
  • Fascinating to watch artisans making reproduction glassware as it was done centuries ago. Beautiful selection of items being retailed as well. This is a must see to finish off your visit to Historic Jamestown!
  • Worth the stop to see the historical artisans at work. Nice gift shop to take home some of their work!
