Prepare to be overwhelmed. You'll be overwhelmed with the stark white walls of the contemporary glass gallery, the science of making glass in the interactive technology gallery, the amount of glass in the 35 Centuries of Glass gallery, the size of the gift shop, the glass making demo's, the selection of food in the cafe, the number of hours you'll...

Also on display are Showroom samples so customers could visualize what they were ordering. There is a wonderful exhibition book that was created to complement the... More

Great lesson and entertainment! Make sure to visit the demonstrations offered​ on the schedule, the artists are wonderful at showcasing their beautiful art and the process. The exhibits are great and plentiful. Small children or/and those with short attention span might not enjoy it as much. However, if you are patient and like to learn new things, amazing place!

We parked at the Welcome Center and it was a 3 minute walk to the museum. The 35 centuries of glass area has many amazing items and it was interesting to see so many different pieces, especially the creativity and detail in some of them. Since there are so many pieces, you can start to lose interest after a couple... More

Corning New York was the home of several of the 5 men who jump started the modern studio art glass movement in the USA. The Corning Museum of Glass is one of perhaps four imperative experiences of the American art glass movement in the USA
