Pure Glass House Tours are new, created in response to visitor request and to offer the opportunity to view the Glass House and surrounding landscape as it transitions from late summer through fall. The tour option is ideal for those visitors who are interested in learning about the Glass House but have limited time, mobility or prefer not to participate in the 3/4 mile walk over uneven terrain required to visit the additional structures on the site. Visits to these surrounding structures (Painting Gallery; Sculpture Gallery; Da Monsta; Library/Study) are featured on many of our other Glass House Tours.
