A list of Art Galleries specialising in stained glass and studio glass

While there is no gallery in Australia devoted exclusively to stained glass there are several excellent galleries specialising in contemporary Glass Art. Occasionally they may show stained glass. There are however some specialised stained glass galleries in Europe, perhaps the most exciting being Centre International du Vitrail in Chartres- I had the good fortune to visit this gallery in 2017. Hopefully one day I will manage to get to Ely Cathedral in the UK as well. While in the Netherlands I also managed a visit to Museum Jan van der Togt: an excellent art gallery, well worth the effort. And Vitro Musee in Switzerland was a veritable treasurehouse.

The Stained Glass Museum, located in Ely Cathedral


Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam: unquestionably an outstanding, world-class museum or art and antiquities, the Rijksmuseum, rather unsurprisingly, has a significant collection of stained glass, beautifully displayed.
Museum Jan van der Togt: This boutique museum is based on the collection of Jan van der Togt, an industrialist and philanthropist. I found some very inspiring glass sculpture on display when I visited in 2017.


VitroMusee Romont I visited this gallery in October 2017; a sheer delight. Its adjacent building houses what I believe is the world's only museum of reverse-painted glass. Quite a revelation.
Wallpaper Museum, Fribourg: this is a wonderful museum. My friend Ursula in Bern took me here on the way to the Vitro Musee. The house is completely covered in every conceivable wallpaper you could imagine, and as well they feature studio glass art.
