The Shanghai Museum of Glass is one of Shanghai's most impressive. The exhibitions of ancient and contemporary glassworks on display include some stunning specimens, but it's the building itself that has made it one of our favourite museums in town.
Set in a huge former glass-making factory, the museum's interior is like a cross between a house of mirrors and David Bowie's lair in Labyrinth.
Walking through the museum's numerous rooms feels disorientatingly like you're inside on of the artistic glass objects that it displays. The building is a work of art in itself.
Shanghai Museum of Glass’ creative
brand Let’s Talk Glass holds regular classes
focusing on different aspects of glassmaking
including, glassblowing, flame-working,
glass mosaic and sandblasting.
