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 gimicky but still worth doing, and the entire complex is set in the most beautiful location

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.
