How you help Where would a museum be without volunteers? If you have spare time and energy, the New Bedford Museum of Glass could use your help to further its educational mission! Volunteering is a great way to gain work experience, participate in the creative economy of New Bedford, and help advance the appreciation of glass. We hope you'll consider joining our vibrant community of scholars, collectors, and artists!
About us The NBMOG is an art museum both historic and modern, with a unique collection gathered from around the world and spanning the millennia! NBMOG's collection of approximately 7,000 marvels of the glassmaker’s art has been in continuous development since the museum’s founding in 1993. Particularly well represented is the glorious late 19th-century art glass originating in the city of New Bedford, once described as the “Art Glass Capitol of the Country.” Early American blown and pressed glass, pattern glass, 17th and 18th century English tableware, Bohemian and Italian glass, Sandwich glass, lighting, marbles, cup plates, and many other popular categories all help to tell the fascinating story of glass production from ancient times to the present. Tiffany. Lalique. Steuben. Orrefors. Just a few of the many famous makers whose dazzling creations can be admired in the museum’s extensive displays!
