This place is very similar to the Glass Museum and Showroom in Corning, New York. After entering, there is an audio/visual guild-tour for the history of the factory; then you can see a dozen of workers making all kinds of glassware in front of ovens...More

Just popped in fast, lovely selection of glass products for the table and for the house. A must stop on the route!

Visited on a rainy day. Not many staff around to help out and we felt quite ignored. Finally we were asked to go out into the rain to find the museum and were completely lost. Left without seeing anything. Is this for locals only?

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.

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.

Great place to spend a few hours seeing glass blown, a tour of the factory and the musuem, and also shop across the road. Well worth a few hours and enjoyed it with the wife, Close to the lake and Glasi restaurent

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

I don’t actually know the official name! Google the Hergiswil Glasi (I can’t post a link here for some reason) and it will show you. It’s in a park next door to the Glasi and is free entry. A ferry to Hergiswil from any... More
