Curated by the Finnish Glass Museum, the exhibition extends into Annantalo’s second-floor corridor. The gallery at the end of the corridor displays glass with different levels of brightness and special colours, including utility and art glass, different glass textures, manufacturing tools and applications. You can also find out how glass bends light and study the different tools used to make glass.
