While this museum cannot compete with the glass museum in Passau (30,000 pieces in collection!) it is still worth a stop. It is not just a museum but also a shop and workshop with glassblowers giving demonstrations. There are some very nice pieces on display...More

Wertheim is the centre of Glass Making in Germany. The team that run in it are very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and welcoming. Keep and eye out for the 6 Litre Wine Glass and the electric Glockenspiel

What a lovely collection of glass located outside the old town Centre just a short walk. We saw in a tour and went back after for a closer and longer look.

Lots of people around and music festivals so I popped in to the museum to have a quick peek. Nice quirky stuff but luggage restrictions prevented me from making purchases

When the glassblower is working it's a great thing for children, it is a hands on experience. There are some other interactive exhibits for children and adults.

This museum is worth a visit. The decorative glass is unbelievable. Wether you are interested in beautiful glass bowls, based or decorative pieces you are likely to find something you like here.

Glass is important in Wertheim. The museum is a wonderful snapshot. Easy access and parking. Don’t miss a monument to Glass and Glass-makers located in the park adjacent the the quay on the Main River.
