Stourbridge
Glass Museum

Allister Malcolm’s Hotshop

Welcome to Stourbridge Glass Museum – a new museum at the heart of Stourbridge’s Glass Quarter, opening to the public for the first time in April 2022.

The museum will be housed in the Grade II listed former Stuart Crystal Glassworks, which has been creatively and imaginatively adapted for the purpose.  Combining both permanent and temporary exhibition galleries, a hot glass making studio and a hands-on activities space for children and their families, this innovative new museum will serve regional, national and international audiences.

“Stourbridge Glass Museum: at the heart of the community with a globally significant collection to educate and inspire.”
