Experience Ohio Glass Museum & Glass Blowing Studio

OGM Museum

You will always find something new at the Ohio Glass Museum as we present changing exhibitions of glass items throughout the year. If you missed some of our past exhibits, we will still have examples of what was shown since our opening day on May 20, 2006.

We are conveniently located at 124 W Main St in Lancaster, Ohio 43130 off of Business Route 33 (map) in Historic Downtown Lancaster. Glass pieces blown and designed in the studio are for sale in the OGM Gift Shop. They are great for unique gifts for that special person.

Current Exhibition

"A Very Private Collection..." featuring glass from 1875-1920 represents a time when families used a mix of crystal and colorful tableware daily or when entertaining guests. Many of the pieces are considered glass from the Victorian Period. The gold edges on some items add a touch of elegance not seen in later periods. A mixed arrangement of seldom seen and very rare pieces of glass on loan from the collector will remain on display through August 26, 2018, in the OGM Gallery to dazzle the viewer.

Multiple pieces of glass donated to OGM are displayed in other cabinets in appreciation of the donors' efforts to preserve our glass heritage. The museum collections will rotate in and out during other special displays on loan throughout the coming years.
