You can click on any of the photographs in this blog post to access the album, photographed by my son.

the right. Glass has blown into these various shapes and filled with some a gaseous substance — hopefully, inert — that is able to be luminescent with various different colors.

It is definitely worth a visit, particularly if you do not consider the regular admission price of $18 per person to be steep.
There is also a write-up on the museum on Wikipedia.
