It traces the history of glass in Montr al, from the time of handcrafted objects to industrial production that started in the 1850s, and up to the present day, where recycling has become an essential part of the manufacturing process. Once they became accessible to all social classes, glass objects transformed household habits. The Glass Cycles exhibition focuses on glass, the glass industry and glass recycling, through the history of the plant which is located, since 1905, on land that formerly belonged to Maison Saint-Gabriel, in Pointe-Saint-Charles, and is now owned by O-I Owens-Illinois , the largest producer of glass in the world.
