Excursions

The excursion through different departments of G&B beads follows up the exposition of the glass machines. We will show you the current production of the glass beads, you will learn about the raw materials, forms, glass rods, various bead shapes and technological processes. You will be allowed to have a look into the thumbling machines, find out how do we cut the beads on the manual and automatic devides and furthermore find out how do we polish the beads in the special electric belt furnace. You will make your own idea of how much work, patience and skills are hidden in every bead.

The tour, within which you will learn about the entire production process, lasts approximately 50-60 minutes.

We will give you the adequate professional  comment explaining the historical and technological context associated with the glass beads production.
