Ohio Glass Museum
This museum honors the glass-making traditions that are a part of Lancaster’s history. Between the 1890s and the late 1920s, roughly a dozen glass companies set up operations in the region, drawn by the area’s natural resources. An overview film and docent-led tours cover the various glass-making processes used through the years. A resident glass-blower gives demonstrations and offers classes.
Exhibits showcase everything from etched crystal stemware to decorative milk glass pieces to utilitarian but colorful Depression-era glass items. Special events, including a Marbles Tournament, are held throughout the year. Locally crafted glass items in the gift shop make great souvenirs.
