The town of Sandwich is the oldest community on Cape Cod and is known for its glassmaking heritage. This museum, housed in a red-brick building on Main Street, is dedicated primarily to the work of the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company, which was in operation from 1825 to 1888. On display are almost 6,000 glass items, including lamps, tableware, candlesticks, vases, and perfume bottles. Check ahead for a schedule of live glassblowing demonstrations.
