We have 3 kids 6 and 8 year old and they loved it. My mom and my husband also did. The building is impressive as well as the art. Shows were given at different galleries and the kids loved making their own glass

Our GPS keep on indicating that the entrance to the center was THERE but we had to drive around several times to find it. Why was the entrance so hard to find?

If you have been here before, go again! If you have not been here, GO! This place is so amazing. The entrance fee is very affordable for adults and free for 17 and under. I went with 13 and 11 year old girls and they had a blast! The museum and the different kinds of glass was cool to look... More

The museum was much larger than we expected. The demonstrations were comfortable, informative, and well done. I enjoyed the side of the museum that detailed the technical and scientific aspects of glass as well as the artistic galleries.

We visited the museum one morning when we were in the Finger Lakes more because we thought we shouldn't start the wine trail that early - and are we glad we did. We expected something about Corning but we got was a large museum full of beautiful displays throughout history. It also had interesting demonstrations that the kids would love.... More

This was our first time to the museum and will not be our last. The museum offered three areas of interest. First, the history of glass with demonstrations and interactive sites. Two, an extensive collection of glass thru the ages. Third an exhibit of incredible art work of international artists.

The masterpieces that can be created from sand. The museum has a display of works that are absolutely breathtaking. Absolutely worth a visit and be sure to make room in the car to take something home with you from the shopping area.

Interesting displays and it wasn't that bad at all. Strictly fragile place for little ones but it was fun. Great souvenirs to choose from.

Easy parking, payment at entry and overall good experience. This place is immaculate. Took the grandparents and two little ones. It's not the best for the under 10 crowd, but we were there for about 2 hours and didn't have any complaints. They each got to pick something from the gift shop and all was well. Overall, if you're in... More
