We usually bring out-of-town guests downtown to view the glass exhibits from the bridge of glass for free. This is where the majority of the glass art work is displayed. Also you can see some for free in the court house which is in the old Union Station on Pacific Ave. We had a field trip here as well. It was especially good timing because they have been featuring an exhibit where children design the pieces. It is always worth checking out the current exhibits online before visiting because they quite often have displays that are not appropriate for children. The thing that is the most unique on the inside of the museum is that you can watch live glass blowing in the hot shop.

We did a field trip here, like the other reviewer, when they had the children's exhibit. Otherwise, I don't know that it would be that interesting to elementary children.
It is unique, though, that is for sure.
The "cone" where they do live glass blowing is definitely interesting, but more for adults and teens (if they are artistically inclined)
We prefer the (free) glass bridge. This is actually more exciting and interesting to our family.
