Museum of Glass Art

Housed in what was once the orangery of the Yelagin Palace is the Museum of Glass Art which displays products of the Leningrad Glass Art Factory. The factory was founded by sculptress Vera Mukhina in 1940 and remained in operation until 1997. The museum has thousands of exhibits ranging from domestic glassware and mirrors to glass sculptures and architectural features. The museum also details the process of moulding and cutting glass.
