In the grounds of the museum a hot glass studio one can be found. The studio is in action from spring to autumn and visitors are able to follow the magic of glassblowing as the hot, syrupy mass is formed into beautiful items of glass. During the summer months a number of activities are arranged for both children and adults such as glass casting, sand blasting and fusing.
THE WORLD OF GLASS is an interactive learning centre, where a number of digital and physical elements explain some of the exciting facts about glass and glassmaking. One of these elements is "The Digital Glass Blower", which allows visitors to experience glassmaking "hands on".
You can also take part in a questionnaire entitled "Exploring the Exhibitions". It has been designed for parents and children and includes questions relating to the exhibitions. If you are interested in taking part, please ask at the reception desk. You can also take part in the museum's drawing competition: draw the piece you like best and participate in the competition. Paper and crayons can be found in the library on the 1st floor of the old building. Remember to add your name and address at the bottom of your drawing! Every month, we review all the drawings received and one winner will be chosen. The winner will be notified by post and will receive a small glass object as a prize.
The exclusive shop offers a wide range of glass items at varied prices, created by Danish and international craftsmen.
