  • Loved learning how glass objects were made in colonial days. You can also buy the objects that you watched being made. The large stone furnace was very hot but felt good on a cold day. 
  • A good introduction into glass making in our country. It is well worth your time to stop here a watch glass being shaped into some awesome shape. The shop will ship for you. 
  • My kids absolutely loved the glasshouse. Watching people making glass objects and feeling the heat had them entranced. Bonus, you can buy what they make in the attached gift shop!

  • Loved this place. A history story and watching the glass blowing process at the same time. People working here were extremely knowledgeable. Nice shop there also.
  • Great place to see glass blowing by hand, similar to how it was done yards away 400 years ago. They sell the results on site.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • The staff was more than willing to answer questions and explain what they're doing. They make it look really easy.
