1501 Glasstown Road, Millville
The Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center (formerly known as historic Wheaton Village) consists of several unique attractions on over 60 acres.
The Glass Studio, part of the Artist Studios, has skilled, world class glassblowers transforming hot molten glass into bottles, vases and other glass items. Demonstrations are held daily and you can sign up to make your own paperweight.
Walk through the other various Artist Studios -- ceramic, flamework (working with glass rods over a torch), wood carving -- and see skilled artists at work.
The Museum of American Glass is the largest museum in the United States which dedicates the preserving history of glass making and also holds the world's largest (7'8" tall) bottle.
The Down Jersey Folklife Center is a research center exhibiting the traditions which make up the heritage of the Southern Counties of New Jersey. The Center provides tours for students and adults and sponsors live performances throughout Wheaton Village.
Other attractions include the train which offers visitors a ride through the Pinelands, the 1876 built Centre Grove Schoolhouse and the Tinsmith Shop which demonstrates on the weekends.
