Turner Museum of Glass
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
Founded in 1943 by Professor WES Turner, the museum houses one of the most comprehensive collections of 19th- and 20th-century glass in the UK.
Assembled by Turner largely during glassworks visits, particularly throughout Europe and the USA, the collection is unrivalled in its display of work from the 1920s to the 1950s. The 13 cases of glass artefacts illustrate forming and colouring techniques and include vases, bottles, plates and paperweights, with one specifically devoted to 18th-century wine glasses.
