UKAI Venetian Glass Museum is a great museum featuring hundreds of kinds of antique and modern Venetian glass. Some of these glassware include significant pieces such as wine glasses of the Italian noble Visconti Family. The museum also has bolder items such as a gorgeous glass walled corridor composed of 160,000 drops of crystal glass. UKAI Venetian Glass Museum holds several workshops where guests have a chance to create their own glasswork including keyholders and necklaces. There are two basic workshops you can choose from: sandblasting and fusing. Sandblasting is the process of smoothing out the glass by scratching its surface. Fusing uses heat to fuse different pieces of glass together. After a nice day spent at UKAI Venetian Glass Museum looking at various amazing glass works and creating your own, take a break at the Museum Cafe where you can sip on a cup of tea and listen to live Italian music.
