Glasi Museum

The Formed by Fire museum tells the story of glass and of Glasi Hergiswil in particular. With an accompaniment of light and sound you will be guided through a labyrinth of backdrops. Rooms with different presentations detail the development of the craft at Glasi Hergiswil, and the economic ups and downs of the family. The museum presents a story of rustic homespun, of the struggle between small and great, of managers and workers. Vivid spaces depict the mighty crisis after the Second World War, when Roberto Niederer saved the Glasi works. The museum is a walk-in film, a rustic theatre, a cabinet of illusions, a time machine. Let yourself be captivated by the richly varied presentations. The museum was chosen by the European Council in 1996 as «one of the most beautiful museums in Europe».
