The Glass House is a museum of architecture and art in New Canaan, Connecticut, located in an ensemble of buildings owned and designed by celebrated American architect Philip Johnson (1903-2005).

The museum takes its name from the famous international-style building known as The Glass House, which is part of the complex. The museum is located in a 49-acre National Trust Historic Site, where a series of buildings, fourteen in total, is surrounded by a magnificent landscape, designed by Johnson with European 18th-century gardens in mind, with beautiful ponds, creeks, knolls, and woods.
