From Our Editors

The World of Glass imparts a world of history and art on the people of St. Helens. The museum houses over 7,000 items within the St. Helen's Heritage Collection and the Pilkington Glass Collection. The former has objects from the mining era, war time, Egyptology and pieces that celebrate social history, while the latter boasts a collection of glass items and sculptures from around the world. Also ready for viewing is an art gallery displaying a wide variety of works, a two-tonne Manchester Airport chandelier, the Artisan Gift Shop and a live glass blowing demonstration. Groups can also stop for a bite to eat in the Kaleidoscope Cafe, and enjoy a range of sandwiches, jacket potatoes and hot and cold drinks.

All the staff I spoke to were very friendly and helpful. The videos were really good for the children, not too long and very interesting.

Had a great time and lots of information and help given to us from Elaine Beech, one of the guides?,I had a 6 year old with me and he was obsessed with the Wizard appearing inside the mirror maze! He also enjoyed the activity sheet and his lunch in the cafe:)
