N.D.G.A. National Glass Museum
The NDGA National Glass Museum opened its doors to the public on May 1, 2012. This museum has been a dream of the National Depression Glass Assoc. for many years. When we opened the door we had over 18,000 pieces of glass that had been donated for this purpose. We have an entire building just packed full of beautiful American made glassware dating from the 1800’s up through the 1970’s. The front window of our museum is dedicated to glass displays that are changed out every three months. A lot of these displays in the front window are on loan from various Depression Glass Clubs from around the country that bring in collections from their members to share with those who visit.
A small corner of our museum is dedicated as a library. Our volunteers are happy to help with research on a pattern. We conduct bus tours and also allow clubs to hold their meetings there with a volunteer presenting a program about the glass. We hope you will stop by and visit.
Our museum has a dedicated area for a gift shop. We sell museum t-shirts, totes and post cards as well as a limited edition Christmas ornament. We also have several shelves of glassware that we offer for sale to the public. Right now our hours are limited but if you know you are coming please call for an appointment for off days/hours visiting. 620-326-6400
Our museum is a non-profit organization and we do not charge admission. However, we gratefully accept donations to help keep the doors open.
By the way, we just recently expanded our display area which means more glass for you to enjoy.
