The festival will feature discussions on the history of antique bottles and offer appraisals from the Long Island Antique Bottle Association.

There will also be a workshop on making sea glass jewelry, a glass-themed scavenger hunt for kids and sea shanties performed by The Royal Yard.

Tickets to the event are $10 and admission for museum members is $8, while children 3 and under are free. The sea glass pendant workshop costs $7 and it is $5 for members.
