The UKAI Venetian Glass Museum is a great museum featuring hundreds of antique and modern Venetian glass. Some of these glass-ware include significant or historical pieces, such as the 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. There's also an impressive array of modern and classical vases, goblets, lamps and sculptures. The museum features Italian styled buildings to house the museum exhibits and gift shop.
In addition to exhibits, the UKAI Venetian Glass Museum also holds several workshops where guests have a chance to create their own glass-work, such as key-holders or necklaces. There are two basic workshops you can choose from: sandblasting or fusing. Sandblasting is the process of smoothing out the glass by scratching its surface. Fusing uses heat to combine 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. The cafe is also next to the garden to enjoy the open-air sculptures on the premises.
