This is our third trip to Corning glass. The shuttle drop off from the parking lot to the main doors is very convenient. There is contemporary glass art, and historical. The glass shows are impressive and contain a balance of information while highlighting the artistry involved. We tried the sandblasting experience this trip. Be prepared to wait a long time... More

We went last Wednesday and it was a gorgeous day. Easy to find. You take a shuttle ride to the museum or a short walk. It wasn't busy at all and it was like we had the entire place to ourselves. We loved it, interesting and beautiful glass sculptures to look at. Lots of facts and knowledge to go along... More

My wife and I went down to the Corning Museum of Glass before Martin Luther King Day to do some glassblowing and visit the Museum. We had a lot of fun! The glassblowing demonstrations are fun to watch, and the glass artwork on display is amazing to look at. There were more people (kids especially) on MLK Day, so if... More

We arrived late in the day and got in only slightly less than 2 hours; we could have easily used 3x as much! Fascinating and varied exhibits on many diverse aspects of this ubiquitous material.

We thought we would spend a couple of hours here - and ended up spending 4 - and could have stayed longer. The museum has been highly recommend to use by others, but we thought "what could be so great about glass." Well, just go and see. It is an AMAZING place with so much interesting information about glass and... More

It is great to hear how much you enjoyed our Innovations Center learning about the science behind glass! Maybe next time learn about the science of glass through a hands on project you get to make and keep over at The Studio. Thank you for taking the time to review us! More

We enjoyed a light luncheon in the Cafe'. We had the cheeseburgers and they were very good. They had a wide selection of sandwiches and salads and drinks at very reasonable... More

Visited Corning as part of a bus tour to Niagara on our way to the falls from NY. Just saw the gift shop and they had amazing pieces of glass art, some of which were quite regular, but others were plain spectacular and well worth the thousands of dollars of price tag. Didn't pay for the museum as I thought... More
