Vimbodí i Poblet Glass Museum with live demonstrations

Vimbodí i Poblet Glass Museum with live demonstrations

The only museum dedicated to glass in Catalonia with live demonstrations of glass-blowing techniques shown by the master glazier. The pieces made here can be purchased in the Museum shop.

The visit to the Museum takes a look at different old glass objects, the history of the origin of glass and the glass industry at the start of the XX century in Vimbodí i Poblet. We will be able to identify objects of every day use (jug, cruet...) and others that seem anecdotal (toys, matrimony...); and learn the vocabulary and how to identify the tools used by the blower and the utensils and materials used by the twill makers to coat the glass carafes.

 

Live demonstrations of glass blowing in the morning are no exact time and according to the influx of people.
