The Museum of American Glass in West Virginia

MUSEUM NEWS 2008

The summer of 2008 was a great time indeed for the Museum of American Glass in West Virginia. The entire California National Marble Museum was received on our doorstep. Most of it had to be placed into temporary storage. We have plenty of floor space to display it, we just weren't prepared with vacant cases. In fact, the purchase of new marble display cases was the longest discussed topic at the September board meeting:
