上海玻璃博物馆 Shanghai Museum of Glass
The limitless glamour
of glass unveils
beyond your imagination.
Since its launch in 2011, the Shanghai Museum of Glass (SHMOG) has been offering an engaging visiting experience with exquisitely avant-garde exhibitions and space design, beautiful glass exhibits, and attractive and interactive projects. With the forward-looking concept of “creating and sharing a new lifestyle about the aesthetics of museums”, SHMOG has created the brand-new and multi-functional SHMOG Park to lead the public to experience, imagine, create and share the limitless possibilities of glass with this unique approach. As a new cultural landmark, the Park is home to both outstanding exhibitions on art and design, and diverse entertainment activities in this open space, which present the public with the most lively art and exciting lifestyle.
Unit one: What is Glass ?
With its entirely new interactive concept, the Museum displays the entire process of glassmaking from start to finish and the many characteristics inherent to glass. Interactive video exhibits on large screen LCDs tell the story of how sand is mysteriously changed into glass in an amusing way.
Unit two: Development of the Glass Technology and Craft
This extraordinary space tells the history of Chinese and Western glass, illustrating the brilliance that glass has left for mankind throughout history. Yellow lights installed below the exhibit cases light up the “silk road,” which brought the traditions and histories of Eastern and Western glassmaking closer together. Through the exhibit, visitors can search along the silk road for the remains of cities. Meanwhile another LED lighted path displays the history of the near modern glassmaking industry in Shanghai.
