i-Box Glass Museum Penang

Glass Museum Penang wall art

Glass Museum Penang is a good place to learn about glass making, create your own glass souvenir, shop for quality glass items and take fun photos with some glass-themed 3D art.

The parent company of the museum, i-box Design Sdn Bhd, designs and manufactures creative glass products for home and office decor. Three techniques are explained here, namely sandblasting (to carve designs on glass), fused glass process and airbrushing.

The museum is a sideline business to attract visitors and spread awareness of the company's range of products.

As soon as you enter you pass through an infinity-effect mirror tunnel.

It is not really a museum in the traditional sense but exhibits include Malaysia's longest batik-motif glass painting.

Glass Museum Penang trick art photography

Upstairs are interactive displays such as ultraviolet-lit glass art panels, kaleidoscopic mirrors, coloured glass floor panels, glass murals and fun 3D trick art displays for taking selfie photos.

Glass Museum Penang glass decorating workshop

The main workshop is a restricted area but though a window you can see how their skilled artists create their works of art. After seeing a demonstration of glass making and decorating techniques you can try your hand at decorating your own souvenir glass product to take away, such as a small glass plaque or a wall hanging made from recycled glass bottles. The souvenir is included in the ticket price.
