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.

A MUST - During a trip ti the finger lakes, my wife came across the museum. We thought it would be an interesting day. We went three days in a row. Got an in depth view into glass blowing and watching artists work. Informative and incredible to watch these masters work. A MUST if you are in area. Will be back, I guarantee...

Three generations of fun - Fascinating merge of art and science. My family, ages 10 to 80 found engaging and educational exhibits and demonstrations. Many of the exhibits are interactive which made everyone happy.

If you enjoy glass you really need to experience the Corning Museum! - The entire trip was wonderful and the museum is amazing!! If I have to pick one thing I think it was getting to physically see pieces that I'd watched being made on tv.

Sparkling Exhibits and Gifts Worth a Special Trip - This unique museum is worth a special trip. The modern glass art galleries are stunning, but made richer with the context of the historic glass exhibits. I only wish we had more time to really dig into them. We didn't time it right to sit through all the live glass demos, but the museum is set up with a number of those occurring every day. A few of the exhibits on the science of things feel like they need to be refreshed a bit. The gift shop, though, is a spectacular place to buy gifts for anyone at just about any price point - from $5 to $50,000. Much of the glass art on display there is exhibit-quality by itself. I bought myself a little glass dinosaur similar to one I got to see being made in the museum. Also - I want to give a special shoutout for the museum staff who handled a dumb situation well and professionally while we were there (someone in my group somehow managed to drop their phone inside a glass art exhibit).

See live glass making exhibit! - Excellent museum with glass making exhibits, history of glass, and examples of glass sculpture from many different artists. Could have spent all day here (only spent half a day). Extensive gift shop. Want to go back and take a class.
