Launched in Spring 2011, the Shanghai Museum of Glass is one of the city’s main cultural attractions, the place where visitors enjoy amazing selections of glass art and a memorable journey through the history of this stunning material.
Apart from the glass works wonders inside, the building itself is a piece of art. Housed in a huge former glass-making factory, the Shanghai Museum of Glass is a labyrinth of textures and lights beautifully built on an industrial space.
