September Curator Tour at Lightner Museum

Pressed Glass

Lightner Museum Curator Barry Myers conducts monthly tours featuring unique and special treasures of the Museum.  The tours are the first Wednesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. and offer guests an intimate encounter with a select few eclectic relics of the museum.

September’s tour topic will be about 19th and Early 20th Century pressed glass, also known as patterned glass, which began being manufactured c. 1825.

Throughout the tour, Myers will explain the history of pressed glass, how it is made, and how it brought elegance to the middle-class dining room table.

Tours begin in the front lobby of the museum at 10:00 a.m. on the first Wednesday of each month.  Tickets are included in the price of admission. Donations are appreciated and will be accepted after the tour.

The Lightner Museum is a non-profit organization sustained by the generous support of individuals, businesses and sponsors.
