    Watching the glass be made was very nice. Such an art! In talking with the folks that worked behind the counter, they were very informative and friendly. This is a small place but well worth the visit...  more »

    Kids loved the place as they could see the whole process of artisan glass blowing. You can feel the heat of the high temp oven. And it is free to visit. You can also buy souvenirs and visit the historic place of the glass oven of the original settlement.

    Amazing artisans at work. The scenery is amazing. I saw them cheat (they used a blow torch at one point) but it's still amazing to see them work. The natural green glass is beautiful, and they'll ship any of the pieces you buy to the continental US.

    Very cool to see and the glass blowers did a great job answering questions. We returned another day in the hopes that they were making something different but they were making Pulpit Vases both times we came. Still fun and the bubble one of the glass blowers made really impressed the kids.

    I love watching people do stuff like the olden days. Very educational. Great park nearby. Must see for all families and even individuals.

    Very interesting place to visit. We were able to see how the various pieces of glasswork were made in a traditional way.

Where to stay in Williamsburg

Williamsburg offers lodgings for every taste, including four-star resorts, quaint inns, and budget-friendly hotels. Accommodations in the city's historical district provide easy access to all of the area's major attractions, but they also charge much higher prices than equally comfortable guesthouses in some of the outlying neighborhoods. For a genuine Virginian experience, consider pitching a tent or renting a cottage in one of the area's popular campgrounds, which offer shuttle services to the city's major attractions and provide free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and fenced-in areas for pets.
