The Kids Museum of Glass is a complementary setting to the Shanghai Museum of Glass. Featuring two floors of displays, demonstration areas, DIY workshops, a gift shop and a cafe, it is more of a playground than a museum. It integrates elements taken from the Shanghai Museum of Glass, such as sleek and streamlined surfaces, and these concepts have been turned into an inviting space. Design elements like smooth glass surfaces are punctuated by more commonplace materials such as plywood, while the “Glass City” with three areas called “The Beach”, “The Circus” and “The Factory” offer an exciting playing experience.
