Why have gallery links at a site for glassblowers?
My strongest reason is that these are the places to see modern glass, well lighted, and close up.
Some of these places have web sites that show glass and I encourage visits.
These are not ads nor recommendation, but simply another resource list.

I debated whether to put the small number of museums with extensive glass holdings here or to
make a new page.
Museums has a number of galleries (not all glass) listed here
