Dudley Museums has two fantastic venues - Dudley Museum at the Archives and The Red House Glass Cone. The collections and exhibitions on our sites are many and varied, covering centuries of Dudley's history. Join us for a celebration of our contribution to the nation's industrial heritage, art and culture.

Red House Glass Cone

The Cone's restoration has now started. There is no access at all to the actual cone whilst building work is taking place. The rest of the site is still open.

The Red House Glass Cone is in the heart of the Stourbridge glass quarter. It was built in 1794 and was manufacturing glass until 1936.
