GLASMUSEUM WERTHEIM - follow your heart and discover the material glass.

GLASS has always had a decisive influence on our everyday life and quality of life. Its development from the former luxury glass of antiquity to today's indispensable material for science, medicine and industry is vividly conveyed in two urban houses of the glass museum.
The 35 glass play stations integrated into the glass ABC allow young and old to grasp the material glass in a playful way.
Glass ball blowing and the glass museum store are among the most popular stations. The highlight
is the nationally known Christmas atmosphere everywhere in the GLASMUSEUM WERTHEIM, every year from the 1st Advent to the 6th January "Historical and modern Christmas tree decorations made of glass" on real spruces and pines.

Glass museum receives COUNTY AWARD

The surprise was great when on October 20 in the district office Tauberbischofsheim District Administrator Christoph Schauder awarded the GLASMUSEUM WERTHEIM e. V. with the first prize of the district honorary award. Heike Baumann accepted the glass sculpture with a certificate of honor and the prize money of € 2,000.
"The County Honor Award is an award for active and voluntary work in associations and organizations with cultural, sporting, social, ecclesiastical or other charitable objectives. For the award in 2021, it was agreed that the Landkreisehrenpreis should be awarded to private museums in the Main-Tauber-Kreis." (Excerpt from the letter of the Tauberbischofsheim District Office dated 10.11.2020). A total of 15 museums have applied. The other award winners are: Tauberfränkisches Landschaftsmuseum in Tauberbischofsheim (2nd place), Fingerhutmuseum in Creglingen (3rd place), Taubertäler Dorfmuseum in Weikersheim (4th place) and the Pfeiferstube in Niklashausen (5th place).

Very nice exhibition. Informative and varied design. Also interesting for (school) children. Live glassblower a highlight. Thanks to Hermann for the humorous and patient ball-blowing.

Very neat and impressive. There are several floors. The children were shown glass blowing and explained a lot and at the end they were even allowed to blow the ball shape themselves. There are very many exhibits to look at in many different variations, beautiful!!!! There are also pieces for sale.......very beautiful.....also to give away😃🤗. You can also book guided tours about history from glass. It is definitely recommended! The town of Wertheim is also worth seeing with its half-timbered houses, castle ruins. The food in the hotel restaurant "Schwan" was particularly delicious. I will definitely go there again😍👍.
