Awesome museum - What an absolutely delightful place to visit. The Corning Museum of Glass is one of the best museums we have gone to, and this is mostly driven by how many experiences there are available here. Pros: + The make your own glass is super worth your time. I would absolutely suggest that you go on their website, find what type of glassware you want to create, and sign up for a spot to make sure you get it at the time that is most convenient for you. We had an absolute blast doing this. + The demonstrations are superb. They paid great attention to detail, were willing to answer questions, and the demonstration schedule was constant throughout the day so that you didn't feel like you would miss out on something. + The gift shop is so much more than your typical gift shop. You could literally spend a half hour there browsing, and still feel like you want more time. + Parking is free, and right across from the entrance. Cons: - Nothing. That's what makes this 5 stars!

World Class Museum - Incredible museum with so much to see - can understand why the ticket is valid for two days! Enjoyed the glass making demonstration - fascinating, talented craftsmen. We saw something similar at a glass museum in Tacoma years back and this was just as good. After this visit I will look at glass in a different light and see what a wonderful invention it was/is. The gift shop is huge and very comprehensive, especially looking around the 'everyday' glassware department. Could have bought much but doubt it would have survived a transatlantic flight! I'd have liked to have seen more glass by the genius Dale Chihuly but only recall one piece (unless I missed others?).

Review of part of the day. - We loved the cafeteria food. It was the perfect example of institution food. I had the chicken tenders and my wife had the pino grigio. We will always remember the food trays... mine was brown.

Glass Blowing and More! - Loved exploring the many areas of the museum and its displays with informative commentary. We totally enjoyed the glass blowing demonstrations; each one had its own wealth of information. It was a rainy day so we didn’t get to visit the town itself but that made it more relaxing to enjoy the museum.

Go here to make your own glass product - We visit here and was able to make our own glass pieces. The glass blowers that were teaching us were total helpful. It made the experience more fun. We visit the museum with all the history dating back to BC Egypt time. There was so much to see. There were also demonstrations of glass blowing throughout the museum. I don’t think young children would enjoy the museum since there was nothing for them to interact with. Teenagers might enjoy this if they were interested in how glass was made and where it all started. The make your own glass studio is good for any age.

What a beautiful place! - I'd made my reservation online for the wrong day mistakenly, but staff said no problem and got us in. They also waived the child's admission fee which didn't actually begin until the next day.
