With a National Art Pass you get
Home to the significant Stourbridge Glass Collection, the Stourbridge Glass Museum celebrates the glass heritage of the area and champions the next generation of glassmakers.
In the heart of Stourbridge's Glass Quarter, the museum is housed inside the former Stuart Crystal factory. Its main purpose is to care for and showcase the stunning Stourbridge Glass Collection, which includes around 10,000 pieces of masterful glasswork from local factories, glassmaking equipment, archive material and more. Considered one of the finest British collections of glass, it spans the 17th to the 20th centuries, demonstrating how 400 years of fashionable glass have thrived in the area.
The museum also includes permanent and temporary exhibition spaces, activity areas for children and families, interactive displays and even a hot glass making studio. Displays particularly focus on the evolution of glassmaking throughout the 17th century as well as highlighting some of the most exciting contemporary designers working on glass today.
