The Museum of Glass recently opened in Shanghai one week ago and contains an extensive collection of glass installations that document the history of glass. The Museum of Glass stands on more than 3,500 square meters and chronicles centuries of history of glass from "ancient glassmaking to present day applications for astronautics."

The values and philosophy behind the Museum of Glass revolve around "sharing the countless possibilities of glass." The Museum showcases thousands of collections and installations of shining, shimmering glass including ancient art and contemporary art glassworks. The building housing the Museum of Glass is entirely glass itself and welcomes visitors to come and enjoy the structural beauty and astonishing artwork. Long-term plans for the Museum include the construction of a Glass Theme Park.
