Gillinder Glass is celebrating 155 years in business in 2016 and we want to share the art of glass making with you! Come see why Gillinder Glass was named one of the top 10 places to visit in the Hudson Valley! Our tour guides will share our story with you as you observe the timeless process of glass making.
Glass working demonstrations & guided factory tours Monday-Friday: 11:15, 12:30, 1:45 (summer hours) feature gathering, pouring and pressing glass of actual production. Since our tour times coordinate with our workers’ schedules and store staffing, please arrive a few minutes early so we may begin our tours on time in order to give you the best experience possible. During very hot days, production may be affected by the heat, which means tours may be affected; call for availability of tours on very hot days. Be sure to check our calendar (Calendar of Events-What’s New tab above) for any daily updates or changes to the tour schedule.
Our Special Glass Blowing Demonstrations & guided factory tours feature guest glass artists who will amaze you with their unique, distinctive, glass blowing talents.
