The World Of Glass ST.Helens Reviews
A Family Day Trip To The Glass Museum Feb 14, 2012
ST. Helens is renowned for its Glass Making with industrial giants such as St.Helens Glass & Pilkingtons Glass. Pilkingtons, synonymous with the town, retains its status as a global player in the technology of glass manufacture; in 1903 it became the only firm in Britain to produce flat glass, a role it has retained ever since.
The World Of Glass is a museum that allows individuals to see the history of glass making since it was first discovered till present day. The museum also holds a gallery dedicated to showing the history of St.Helens.
Individuals can walk over a glass bridge to see an old chimney used for the glass blowing that is an experience its self as its over a river - You may see the fish or terrapins.
Visitors are able to view glass blowing and can even pay to have a glass blowing experience and can keep the glass items they produce. Individuals can also order /commission work from staff for special occasions.
Full Activity Day including 3 workshops, Live Glassblowing and Special Effects AV Show costs £5.50 per child
Carers for individuals whom have special needs has free admission.
Child (5-16) £6.00
Family (2 adults, 2 children) £24.00

A cafe is situated within the museum along side a play area for the children free of charge. The cafe is a reasonable price however for a large group / family the price could be steep so I would advice those to take a packed lunch.
