The National Depression Glass Association opened their National Glass Museum in Wellington, Kansas in 2012. Prior to that time, the glass collection was mostly in storage at multiple locations with portions occasionally on display. The front facade of that building collapsed on July 27, 2019, but the museum moved into the new, larger facility (shown above) on December 7, 2019. 

The NDGA was founded in 1974 and is dedicated to preserving America's glass manufacturing heritage. The museum's collection contains over 18,000 pieces dating from the 1800s through the 1970s and it fills the 2900 sq. ft building, with some materials have stored off site. The collection is unusual, in that it represents the work from all American glass makers of the time period, rather than focusing on one manufacturer.

Although the museum is open only 3 days a week and from March through December, the association will open it for tours at other times by appointment. 

There is also a gift shop with glassware and glass history books for sale. The NDGA National Glass Museum Gift Shop periodically features special sales, including an annual Christmas sale when all items are 20% off for the month of December.
