Sunderland's National Glass Centre is opening to the public this weekend for the first time since its £2.2 million facelift.
The revamp has taken 6 months to complete.
Visitors will be able to discover the origins and legacy of glass-making in Sunderland through new exhibitions, special events and family friendly activities.
They'll be able to experience hands-on arts and crafts activities, themed tours and treasure hunts and free glass-blowing demonstrations.
The new permanent exhibition, 'Stories of Glass in Sunderland', will trace the history of glass-making in the City from the 7th Century.
The new gallery spaces will host a wide range of international exhibitions, presenting the work of leading contemporary artists in glass and ceramics.
