I visited here last October with my boyfriend. It was our two year anniversary and just days after Typhoon Hagibis so almost nothing was open due to the aftermath. We decided to go for a walk to explore and came across this museum. It was overcast and rainy, but everything looked so beautiful. We had lunch in the restaurant, it was also very good, and listened to live music. It was one of our favourite memories from our trip! Would highly recommend visiting. :)

Warm welcoming staff, and I adored the atmosphere inside the museum. Definitely a unique experience and worth visiting, but not recommended for children. The shop is expansive, selling things from exquisite glass jewelry to decorative plates and even authentic Venetian masks.
Highly recommend you to pick up a jar of jam / some chocolate snacks also produced by them.
Great photography spots all around. I visited this autumn.

It is a cute but small museum area. The outdoor glass art pieces are really nice. I recommend to go when the weather is nice.

We would like to thank you the Glass Museum Staff (In Red Uniform) help us to call our hotel (we do not have mobile phone) when we finished the museum visit at 5pm and there are no taxi and bus available. The sky was dark and not much people on the street.
She initially helps us to call taxi but the taxi all busy, and she talk to our hotel for more than 20 mins and our hotel send driver to the Glass Museum to pick us up. We have 5yo and 3yo kids and we cant really walk back to your hotel by ourselves.
Once again, thank you to the Glass Museum Staff who is very friendly and helpful. i didn't get her name as we all are very panic to get back to the hotel.

A beautiful collection of glass objects from artists all over the world. The location is especially scenic, surrounded by the mountains of Hakone.
