This Make Your Own Glass experience, open to ages 14 and up, is one of the more intensive, hands-on experiences. Choose your colors, and sit at the bench while the glassmaker gathers molten glass. You'll use a variety of tools, including a wooden block, to manipulate and shape your paperweight into a heart shape. Pieces must cool overnight and can be picked up the next day, or shipped for an additional fee within the US and Canada.

Spots fill quickly, booking your experience online before your visit is recommended.

Glass made it possible for scientists and artists to see tiny living creatures once invisible to the human eye. Revealing the Invisible: The History of Glass and the Microscope tells the stories of scientists' and artists' exploration of the microscopic world between the 1600s and the late 1800s. Their discoveries fed people's hunger to learn more about nature, increasing the popularity of microscopes and driving improvements in scientific glass. These advances culminated in the 19th century with the advent of modern scientific glassmaking and the perfection of the microscope. Unleash your sense of discovery as you explore the invisible through historic microscopes, rare books, and period illustrations.
