Art on fire!
We invite you to visit Kokomo. Go behind the scenes of America’s oldest art glass company, and explore our local flavor and culture.
Kokomo Opalescent Glass is America’s oldest art glass company and has been making art glass in its original location in Kokomo since 1888 – truly a fusion of art and history! Go “behind-the-scenes” to watch as glass is hand-ladled, mixed and rolled from a 2,500-degree furnace and see demonstrations of traditional glass blowing from local artisans in the Hot Glass Studio.
Public factory tours are offered Monday-Friday at 10:00 a.m. Tour takes approximately 1.5 hours. Group tours are scheduled by appointment. Explore the rich heritage and long standing tradition of Kokomo Opalescent Glass!
After touring the factory at Kokomo Opalescent Glass, take a piece of Kokomo home with you! Beautiful glass items (all made in Kokomo) are available, including jewelry, suncatchers, serving boards, paperweights, and stunning unique blown glass creations. The OP Shop is open Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Note: KOG public factory tours are only offered Monday-Friday at 10:00 a.m.
The Seiberling Mansion was built in 1891 by industrialist Monroe Seiberling. Though the Seiberling family only lived in the home a few years, the legacy of the historic and stunning mansion lives on, now as the home of the Howard County Museum. Look for the magnificent stained glass windows located throughout, which are made with Kokomo Opalescent Glass! Tours are offered Tuesday-Sunday 1:00-4:00 p.m. Holiday tours available starting the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
Cool off at this outdoor waterpark with high energy water slides, lazy river, kiddie slides, leisure and lap pools, and kid’s splash pad. Family changing rooms, lockers, and concessions are available.
More than just a bar, our tap room is home to the entire brewing process. We brew it here, pour it here, and enjoy it here. If you’re new to craft beers or just undecided, our beertenders are happy to discuss the different styles and flavors available. If you’re a well-seasoned beer lover, we hope you enjoy our takes on classic beers and explore some of our experimental offerings. Tin Man Kokomo is a place for the entire family, and we hope you enjoy the games and activities located inside and in the park area outside.
