Evangeline Bergstrom was fascinated with glass paperweights from childhood. Her passion, combined with her personal “pedigree” and her husband’s money, allowed her to amass a world-class collection of glasswork. After her husband’s death, Mrs. Begstrom and her fellow glass enthusiasts the Mahlers, turned her former home into a museum.
The museum itself is small, but always manages to pack in a number of wonderful displays. In addition to the large, permanent collection of paperweights, historic glass pieces, modern items, classrooms and gift shop, the main galleries host numerous traveling shows. From traditional Italian glasswork, to neon to William Morris, if it is glass it will probably find its way here at some point.
