Glass Museum (Cartagena - Murcia)

Glass Museum (Cartagena)

This is an art exhibition centre dedicated to one of the oldest trades in history.

The Glass Museum houses, on its first floor, more than 200 pieces of glass art on display. These pieces come from the old glass factory in Santa Lucia in 1834.

It also has a collection of more than 3,000 pieces of glass and crystal, along with furniture, paintings, and other design objects belonging to different cultures and eras—all of these pieces from the personal collection of the restorer and historian Gonzalo Fernandez Praetor.

In addition, this museum, on its ground floor, has a furnace warehouse where visitors can see an artisan working on glass with different techniques of carving, engraving, and blowpipes, along with the different tools and machinery that glassmakers use.

This exhibition represents an opportunity to see the multiple processes that glass goes through until its final stage.
