The Glass Museum is housed in the Stephens Palace, a Neoclassical style building that was built on the second half of the 18th century. Created by decree-law in 1954, it was not until December 13th 1998 that this museum opened its doors to the public. In that year, glass industry in Marinha Grande celebrated its 250th anniversary. The museum collects, studies and preserves not only the city, but also the whole country. The permanent exhibit is organised in sections according to the function, manufacturing technique and piece décor. It presents pieces of several national production centres, conceived from the 17th to the 20th century. The main tools and machines used in glass production and décor are also on exhibition, not only in the factory area, but also in the small home studio.
