The Ohio Glass Museum was set up to show educational and artistic displays of glass, take the visitor through the development and production of not only industrial glass, but also pressed, blown and art glass. Our continuously showing movie, Born of Fire, is an excellent introduction to the museum and history of the area glass companies.

You will always find something new at the Ohio Glass Museum as we present changing exhibitions of glass items throughout the year. If you missed some of our past exhibits, we will still have examples of what was shown since our opening day on May 20, 2006.

We are conveniently located in Lancaster, Ohio 43130 off of Business Route 33 in Historic Downtown Lancaster. Glass pieces blown and designed in the studio are for sale in the OGM Gift Shop. They are great for unique gifts for that special person.


The mission of Ohio Glass Museum is to enrich, educate and serve the artistic and cultural needs of the public concerning the history of Glass Manufacturing with emphasis on the State of Ohio and Fairfield County.


The establishment of the Ohio Glass Museum incorporated in 2002 reflects the importance of glass in the history and development of Lancaster and Fairfield County's financial stability from 1888 to present.
