Lovely location and a great fun stop. We walked along the lake to the boat ramp. We enjoyed watching glass blowing and we bought a lovely bowl to take home afterwords. A definite bonus to our trip.

We’ve been going to the marble rollercoaster (free park for kids) for some time, but this was our first visit to the glass museum. It was surprisingly good, with lots of animation as you followed a historical path through the factory’s history. Quite interactive and...More

Cant give a bad review to something we didn't see, but google maps and the factory's own website said it was open so we set off on the train from Luzern arriving at 3pm to find the place deserted. Very disappointed.

The museum is definitely worth the price and it was the best trip to a museum that we ever had. You are automatically guided through the whole exhibition and informed about everything. Definitely worth to go. The shop is also great

Really enjoyed this trip. The 7 franc entrance to the museum is totally worth it. Very well done and organised. Its more about glass making at the site rather than history of glass making but very good. The optional glass blowing at the end is...More

Very entertaining visit of a rustic glass factory. Hand blown glass demonstrations. After the visit, you can go to shop and buy some of the unique pieces.

We spent half a day at the Glasi. The introductory show/tour about the history behind glass and the Glasi Hergiswil was interesting and watching the glass blowers at work was also pretty cool. Unfortunately, we didn't get to blow our own glass balls, since no...More
