Located on Yelagin Island, in the Orangery of the Yelagin Palace, this museum showcases the work of the Leningrad Glass Art Factory, which operated from 1940 until its closure in 1997. Founded by the renowned Soviet sculptor Vera Mukhina, the Factory designed and produced crystal and glassware for domestic use, as well as mirrors, architectural details and experimental glass sculpture.

The museum, housed in three smallish halls, contains not only 8000 examples of the Factory's products, but also video displays showing the manufacturing process and sample of the tools used to mold and cut glass.
