New Bedford Glass Museum

The old whaling city is not just famous for its maritime heritage.  Opening soon officially in the old Wamsutta Mill complex is the New Bedford Glass Museum.  The top floor of the mill houses a fantastic antiques center while antique furniture and the  new glass museum can be found at the street level.  There’s ample parking, the upper level is air-conditioned, and the glass museum, while not yet officially open, has most of the exhibits in place with a delightful and knowledgeable curator on duty to explain the intricacies of New Bedford’s famed Pairpoint and Mount Washington Glass.  Many other types of glass are on display from every decade, contemporary, Victorian, Tiffany glass, Sandwich glass and glassworks by reknown glass artists.  This is one not to miss.  Visit their informative site at
