Adult groups also have the option of adding on a hands-on fused glass workshop for an additional charge.

The experience for your students is based on the current exhibitions and connections we can make with classroom learning. Teachers may receive our Curriculum Guides to learn more about the upcoming exhibitions and lesson plans for pre/post-visit activities.

All preschool to 12th-grade tours include a hands-on workshop in the Education Studio. For an additional fee, second graders and older can participate in a fused glass workshop.

Blind and Low Vision Tours


MOG’s newest tour offering has been specifically designed to serve the Blind and Low Vision community. This tour includes welcome and introductions, a visit to the Hot Shop, and docent-led gallery discussions of three art pieces from our newest exhibition, Boundless Curiosity: A Journey with Robert Minkoff, as well as use of tactile images, objects, and 3D prints made to replicate the shape and feel of glass art pieces. The tour concludes with refreshments in the Education Studio, where you will have a chance to give us your feedback on being a Blind or Low Vision guest in Museum of Glass.

It is our goal and aim to make the most inclusive and immersive experience possible for the Blind and Low Vision community.
