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 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).

Entrance fee not so expensive. Children's corner on the upper floor. The kids are thrilled every time!

Highly recommended museum:
Beautiful exhibits, lots of information about glass and a museum to touch and try out.
Unfortunately, the latter is done with caution in Corona times! But everything has been well thought of:
Plenty of disinfectant spray in the appropriate places!
excursion during our holiday in Wertheim!
You should take a few hours for it!
