PENN AVENUE CONSTRUCTION:  Penn Avenue is closed to outbound traffic and is being detoured off Penn at Main Street to Liberty Avenue, Baum Boulevard, Negley Avenue and back onto Penn. Please allow extra time when traveling to Pittsburgh Glass Center.


Pittsburgh Glass Center is located in Pittsburgh's East End neighborhood of Friendship/Garfield, approximately four miles east of the Strip District in downtown Pittsburgh. It is public access and admission is free; however, there is a $5 suggested donation.

Everyone is welcome to visit during our open hours and take a self-guided tour to see our contemporary glass exhibition, explore our studios and meet our artists. We can’t guarantee that you will see a glassblowing demonstration, but chances are good that you will see some classes in action or glass artists at work. If you want to ensure that you see a live glassblowing, gather your friends and family to schedule a tour with a hot glass demonstration or private workshop.
