Stained Glass Museum

The Gelman Stained Glass Museum has stained glass windows from several different churches that have been saved. It's been open for a couple years. I spent over two hours there.

[Daryl Allison, 05/07/2024]

The museum opened in late 2021. Although the building resembles an old Roman Catholic church, it's a new custom structure. All of the windows are illuminated from behind, even after dark.
