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 presented in two of the glass museum's urban houses.
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 shop are among the most popular stations. The highlight
is the nationally known Christmas atmosphere everywhere in the GLASMUSEUM WERTHEIM, every year from 1st Advent to 6th January "Historical and modern Christmas tree decorations made of glass" on real spruces and pines.

Glass museum receives "COUNTY HONOR 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).

What our visitors say 

We found it really beautiful. It is small, but there is a lot to discover. We were there with children and they had a lot of fun. There were stations for experimenting, solving riddles and afterwards everyone got a little reward. The brass band demonstration was also very interesting and exciting. Small but very cosy and friendly, especially recommended for children.

Really great glass museum in Wertheim. Very clearly arranged and many "stations" for children to research and explore. The museum staff is very nice and friendly. At the glass apparatus maker on site, the kids are allowed to try their hand at a glass ball themselves. The museum is absolutely top notch. Please keep up the good work...

A beautiful little museum. I was there with my two 6 year old sons and they were also very enthusiastic. From historical artifacts over, artistic creations to industrial glass and their use was much to learn, observe but also try. In addition a very friendly staff! We will be happy to visit again!
