Preserving the History of our
Nation's First Major Industry

The National Bottle Museum

The National Bottle Museum® was created to preserve, research, and exhibit bottles and objects related to bottle making. Visitors received guided tours of the exhibits, have access to an extensive research library, and are offered an opportunity to view videos on the use of hand tools on display, general glass making techniques, and ways to locate old bottles. The Museum also houses the JRM Artists' Space, an art gallery for artists of varied mediums to showcase and promote their art. The National Bottle Museum offers educational presentations, on and off site, to historical societies, social groups, schools, colleges, service organizations, and others. All these services are provided at no cost to the public.
