About these ratings

Previous visitors describe The Glass Palette - Interactive Glass Studio as a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. It's especially praised by young parents looking for ways to entertain their children while traveling. You can learn how to make glass artwork that ranges from paperweights, picture frames, coffee mugs and jewelry, but the real standouts of visiting, however, are the owners. Numerous reviewers claim that Maria DiMassimo and her daughter Cara are delightful.

"The staff is very helpful, but doesn't hover over you," writes one delighted traveler to TripAdvisor. "You can be as creative as you want to be with multiple options working with glass. … For a little under the price of buying someone else's art work, my daughter took home a piece that will serve as a great memory of a fabulous afternoon, as well as, bragging rights to a beautiful piece of art."

The Glass Palette studio is centrally located, just off Market Street. It's open every day but Monday, with hours fluctuating by day of the week. Classes and walk-in projects have varying prices; visit the studio's official website for more information.
