Bergstrom-Mahler Museum holds the finest and most representative collection of glass paperweights in the world.
The paperweights comprise our primary collection, and the majority of the museum's time and collection assets are focused here. Mrs. Evangeline Bergstrom bequeathed 652 pieces in 1958 to become the foundation of a collection that has grown to 3,000 objects. The majority of the pieces are on permanent display in our ground floor galleries. We strive to be a resource for collectors, artists, and scholars, as well as educate our museum visitors about this fascinating and appealing decorative art form.
