The Museum of American Glass, celebrating the creativity and craftsmanship of American glass, is at the core of WheatonArts. One of only 8 museums in the state of New Jersey to be accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, it offers over 18,000 square feet of exhibition space, a collection over 20,000 pieces strong, as well as a research library and archives.

The fires still burn here at WheatonArts! A national cultural treasure, WheatonArts is located on 45 wooded acres in southern New Jersey. WheatonArts is home to the Museum of American Glass, an international Creative Glass Fellowship Program, the largest Folklife program in the Garden State, a Hot Glass Studio, several traditional Craft Studios, four Museum Stores, a 9,000 sq. ft.
