THE MOST IMPORTANT FUNCTION OF THE MUSEUM IS THE RETRIEVAL, PRESERVATION AND EXHIBITION OF HISTORIC GLASS, BOTTLES AND RELATED ITEMS. THIS SERVES TO IDENTIFY THE LINKS BETWEEN THE PAST AND THE PRESENT SO TO PROVIDE A MEANS TO CONNECT TO OUR LOCAL HISTORY. THIS WE HOPE IS ENTERTAINING IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING AN EDUCATIONAL FUNCTION.

THE MAJORITY OF OUR COLLECTION HAS BEEN DONATED OR LOANED. PLEASE CONTACT THE MUSEUM IF YOU HAVE AN ITEM OR COLLECTION YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE OR LOAN FOR DISPLAY.

SEVERAL TIMES ANNUALLY WE FEATURE A CHANGING DISPLAY OR COLLECTION.
