We're excited to announce a new opportunity for homeschool groups to delve into the captivating world of glassmaking through free guided tours of our Museum and Observation Deck.

Every month, on a midweek day, homeschooling families of ALL AGES are invited to join us between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm for a day filled with exploration and discovery. Whether you have a very small or very large group, our Homeschool Open House is designed to work with the unique scheduling needs of homeschooled students. There is no age requirement to explore our Museum or Observation Deck.

At Blenko Glass Company, we're committed to providing a memorable and educational experience for all families. Join us and embark on a journey into the fascinating world of glassmaking. We look forward to welcoming you! Regular tours for families or small groups ages 14 and up can still be booked at and other groups and educators can explore their options by emailing

Here's what you can expect during your visit:

Guided Walkthrough: Led by a skilled and specially-trained Tour Guide, our tours convene in the upstairs Museum every 45-60 minutes. You'll learn about the rich history, intricate science, and unique artistry behind Blenko Glass. Dive deep into the glassblowing process with the up-close viewing opportunities our Observation Deck offers. From learning about the unique cultural impact of Blenko Glass on the legacy of Appalachian and American glass to appreciating its unique home in the intersection of art and manufacturing, there's something for every curious mind.

Chaperone Accompaniment: We require chaperones to accompany their students throughout the experience.

Scavenger Hunt: Weather permitting, students can participate in a self-guided scavenger hunt in our Garden of Glass, under chaperone supervision. It's a fun way to reinforce what they've learned and explore our beautiful outdoor space.
