Visitors were entertained with exhibits of an enormous glass furnace with glass-blowing demonstrations, looms that created fiberglass, a fully operating, miniature bottling plant, the largest piece of clear crystal ever cast, a three-room furnished suite where the curtains and upholstery were all made of glass and a collection of fun-house mirrors.
