An interesting place with lots of activities for all ages. I was able to receive the student discount. We learned a lot about glass and watched live glass making. At the end of live glass making session, they randomly pick viewers to give out the glass made. I recommend visiting the website in advance to see what activities are taking... More

Worth every minute! The live demonstrations are amazing to watch and very educational. I suggest planning your visit around the demonstrations you want to see, they are all very good. We ended up taking 2 days to view the Museum because there is so much to see and do. There is a very good cafe on site which makes taking... More

It sounds like you took full advantage of admission tickets being good for two consecutive days to really see all that the world's largest glass museum has to offer. Thank you for the review and we hope... More

Awesome place. Worth visiting. We did the shows and the activities to make your own glass. Kids loved it. Various exhibits to see if you are a museum person. Plan for at least 1.5 days as some of the glass work you make is available the next day. Staff is friendly and helpful. Attend the various shows as it gives... More

When going through the Contemporary Art + Design Wing space, we saw glass art and sculpture. Fanastic work, truly exciting. We learned how glass changes the world, the history of the glass exhibits, saw years of artistry and innovation. When we arrived at the works of modern artists, we marveled at their contemporary works. Glass is here to stay. After... More

Don't be fooled. The museum has a large welcome center that is prominently labeled, and multiple flags and banners say CORNING GLASS MUSEUM in big bold letters. We parked and went in and the one person sitting there said we had just missed the shuttle to the museum but it would be back in 15 minutes. We inquired if there... More

It is great to hear that you enjoyed our exhibits, especially our new Contemporary Art + Design Wing which does indeed feel very futuristic with a frosted glass roof and modern curved walls.

Very interesting place. Many live shows to watch one that includes a drawing at the end to win glass that you watched be made. Huge gift shop. Tons of things made out of glass to look at. Trolly that takes you from parking lot to Corning glass and a few other places if you want. Free for kids and teens.... More
