The House of Glass is happy to arrange group tours. For purposes of guided tours, a group is defined as five or more people. Groups of 10 or more will be evenly divided into smaller groups to provide a more enjoyable experience.
Reservations for group tours should be made at least two weeks in advance and are subject to availability. Factory/Studio Groups may schedule other times, or private tours only by appointment. It is always advisable to confirm the tour one week before the scheduled event.
The House of Glass welcomes groups with a variety of interests. Recent groups who have enjoyed our tours include: Book Clubs, Red Hat Society, Collector Clubs and Garden Clubs.
Please, no backpacks or large travel accessories that might threaten the glass merchandise. Photography is allowed, but no tripods when visiting in a group. All children must be attended by a responsible adult.
School and Home School Association field trips are welcome at The House of Glass. A field trip to The House of Glass is a fun and interesting way to introduce students to the world of art glass. Students of all ages have the opportunity to explore glass making and its history through guided and self-guided tours of the museum and displays. Since May through August are especially busy, we recommend that you schedule your trip early!
Hours: The Gift Shop/Showroom hours are displayed on the left. Field trips may schedule other times, or private tours only by appointment Most field trips are scheduled for the morning hours so book early to reserve the desired date and time.
Chaperones: A minimum of one chaperone for every ten students is required due to the nature of the glass displays and the extremely hot surfaces located in the fabrication area. Additional chaperones are welcomed and encouraged.
Facilities: Please note, we do not offer restroom facilities for large groups of travelers; we have one small restroom, which is wheelchair accessible.
Food: Sorry, food and drink are not permitted in The House of Glass.
