Art Glass Factory Tour

Take a tour of Kokomo Opalescent Glass and step back in time – you will see the fascinating technique of making art in sheet glass form. We still manufacture our art sheet glass the same way it was made more than a century ago. In addition, you will see our glass blowers at work making anything from blown glass rondels to exclusive one of a kind blown glass paperweights and vases.

Once your tour is complete you will be given a gift from KOG!  We want your visit to Kokomo Opalescent Glass to be memorable and for you to take away a piece of history.  After you see how our glass is created, you can shop in our retail store, the OP Shop.

For a limited time, your early-morning tour (9 a.m.) admission can be applied toward the purchase of glass product in our store ($20 minimum purchase).

This will be our first activity of the day.

The factory has been in continuous operation since 1888 and certain limitations and requirements apply. Walkers are not permitted on the tour; they are welcomed in our retail shop. Oxygen tanks are not permitted on the tour but are welcomed in our retail shop. Feet must be completely enclosed in thick soled shoes. No open-toed, open-heeled, flip-flops, or clog style shoes are permitted due to OSHA Safety Regulations.

If you are adversely affected by temperature extremes, you may decide to wait in our climate controlled gift shop. The factory has no climate control, so you will need to dress for the weather. Temperatures vary greatly throughout the factory; it can be very cold during the winter and can be extremely hot in the summer.
