Set in the much loved Arreton Barns craft village, Isle of Wight Glass Museum is the perfect place to admire the craftsmanship of the famous Isle of Wight studio glassmakers. There are numerous examples from the Harris family (Isle of Wight Studio Glass), Sculptglass, Glory Art Glass and Alum Bay Glass. There is also a fine collection of glass produced by other British glass makers and if you want to be transported to the glamour and sophistication of the 1920/30s our gallery dedicated to Art Deco glass is definitely for you!
The Isle of Wight Glass Museum is the only museum of its kind in the South and with over 1200 pieces on display there is plenty to feast the eyes on. We also have a library with hundreds of books which you are welcome to browse whilst at the museum.
After you have explored the galleries go ahead and treat yourself or find the perfect gift in our shop. Whilst at the Barns we would also recommend visiting the two glassblowing studios on site. Then you can see how the glass pieces are made first-hand before they end up in treasured personal collections or on display for all to enjoy, as they are in our museum.
Come rain or shine a visit to The Isle of Wight Glass Museum will make a fascinating and enjoyable feature of your day out. We look forward to seeing you.
