Bergdala Glastekniska Museum

There are plenty of museums in the Småland province of southern Sweden that show off the fine glass products that came out of the “Kingdom of Crystal,” as this region became known. But the Bergdala Glastekniska Museum is unique within the glass capital of Sweden, because it also shows how the glass was made.

The modern history of Swedish glassmaking starts in the mid-1700s, a time when the industry’s main products were handblown windows and tableware for the noblesse. This changed in the 1830s with the introduction of manual machines that made it easier to mass-produce tableware for the growing working class.
