Overview

This relocated museum houses a quickly growing collection of more than 3,000 artifacts from all over the world. There are changing exhibitions spotlighting the design and production of glassware, textiles, toys and other crafts. Some of the highlights include the museum's superb collection of Indian masks and Mexican artworks. Started in 1965 by Edith Wyle as a restaurant and crafts shop, it was transformed into a museum in 1973. After suffering financial problems during the early 90s, it moved into its current location in 1995 with backing from the city. Wheelchair access is currently limited to the first floor, but call for information.
