Try your hand at being a sculptor at The World of Glass in St Helens and or watch expert glass blowers at work.

The huge cone-shaped entrance to the museum is a recreation of a “forest cone house”, where four or five glassblowers would traditionally work blowing glass in pots.

The contemporary and innovative World of Glass museum houses the history of the glass industry and allows you walk back in time through its two galleries to the world of St Helens during the Victorian times.

There is also a special effects film show to enjoy plus you can explore the Victorian furnace and underground tunnels before trying to find the wizard in a maze made entirely from mirrors.

Don't miss the huge two-tonne Manchester Airport chandelier which was rehung in the museum in 2008.

After you've had the chance to soak in all the history, you can enjoy something to eat and drink at St Helen’s only canal-side cafe.


Pay once for a family ticket at the World of Glass and get entry for 12 months.
