Glassblowing Demonstrations


Watch molten glass, drawn from the furnace, blown and pressed into exquisite shapes. Learn why the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company led the world in the manufacture of glass during the early 19th century. The glassblower selects someone from each audience to press an actual piece of glass. The 20 minute demonstration takes place every hour on the hour with plenty of time for questions afterward.

Even if you have seen glassblowing before this up close, hands on demonstration is truly enthralling for adults and mesmerizing for children.
