The museum


In accordance with current regulations in the State of North-Rhine Westphalia, the 2G or 2G+ rule applies at the Glasmuseum and Glasdepot

(2G: admission only with proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or recovery, 2G+: a negative PCR test is also required).


Of course, the mask requirement still applies. Please also note the applicable distance and hygiene rules while visiting our museum.

Group tours are currently only possible outside of the opening times!


Founder Lilly Ernsting has built up a private collection of glass objects over the course of more than 40 years. In 1996 the glass museum was opened. It shows contemporary European glass in regular temporary exhibitions.
